FRENCHTOWN — Three new, though familiar faces, will take over varsity programs in Frenchtown this school year, according to Broncs athletic director Kipp Lewis.
Torry Hill, Jasmine Mitchel and Morgan Job will mentor the girls basketball, girls soccer and volleyball programs, respectively, during the upcoming year.
Hill, the former Anaconda standout who led the program to consecutive titles in 2008 and 2009, is most known for her time with the University of Montana, where she played under the now-retired Robin Selvig. A four-year letter-winner with the Lady Griz, Hill started 97 games and appeared in 119, scoring 1,060 career points, which ranks No. 29 in program history according the the UM record books.
She helped the Lady Griz to a pair of Big Sky Conference championships and finished her career ranked No. 4 in 3-point field goals made (202), seventh in assists (436) and seventh in steals (199).
Hill’s coaching career has taken her to Rocky Mountain College, where she served as an assistant for one season. She also spent one year at Missoula Big Sky and two seasons at Florence, coaching junior varsity programs. She earned her psychology degree from the University of Montana and also owns a master’s degree in athletic administration and coaching from Concordia University-Irvine. She is currently finishing her education degree.
Hill replaces Jim Tolman, who retired last year.
Lewis also announced the hiring of Job as the Broncs’ head volleyball coach. A former Shepherd student-athlete, Job attended Montana State University and boasts a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She is currently a sixth-grade teacher in Frenchtown and served as a volunteer coach for the Broncs last season. She also coached club volleyball during the winter.
Job takes over the program after Matthew Pimental was named head coach at Missoula Big Sky.
Mitchel will oversee the Frenchtown girls soccer program this fall, taking the reins from the resigned Phil Baker. Mitchel is a former four-year student-athlete from Frenchtown, starring on the soccer fields. She continued her soccer career at Northwest College and was an assistant coach at Frenchtown last season.
