(Miles City, MT) Miles Community College women’s basketball coach Liz Lewis is proud to announce that Tia Torio has been voted to the North Sub-Region All Region team.

Torio, a sophomore guard out of Manteca, CA, played one of the best seasons in Miles Community College history. Torio appeared in 28 games this season, starting 26 of them, and averaged 28 minutes a game. The sophomore was a catalyst for the Pioneer offense this season averaging 13.7 points per game cracking the top 150 players in all of NJCAA Division I women’s basketball.

Torio shot an astounding 41% from the field and also shot just under 40% from the three point line hitting 83 of her 109 three point shots this season.

Torio’s highlight of the season came on November 19th when she scored 42 points in a double overtime thriller against Williston State to break the MCC scoring record. Nancy Phillips previously held the scoring record when she scored 37 points against North Dakota – Bottineau in the 1985-1986 season.
