Career

Pre-Elite

Toronjo began gymnastics in 2003 when she was in kindergarten. She was soon after invited to become part of the developmental team program at Maximum Gymnastics, her first gym. Toronjo began training at Woodlands Gymnastics Academy in 2007. In 2009 she qualified to the U.S. Challenge as a HOPES gymnast but withdrew from the competition. In 2010 Toronjo began competing as a level 10. After placing 11th in the all-around at the state championships, Toronjo qualified to regionals. She narrowly missed qualifying to elite at the Bieger National Elite Qualifier. In July of that year Toronjo began training at Texas Dreams. A few weeks later she placed 2nd in the all-around and won gold medals on uneven bars and floor exercise at the U.S. Challenge.

Junior Elite

Toronjo qualified to junior elite at the 2011 spring developmental camp. Later that year she competed at the American Classic where she placed 9th in the all-around, 4th on balance beam and won a bronze medal on floor exercise; this qualified her to the 2011 Junior Visa National Championships. At the 2011 Junior U.S. Classic Toronjo placed 19th in the all-around. Later that summer she placed 24th in the all-around at Junior Nationals.

In 2012 Toronjo competed at the WOGA Classic where she placed 4th on floor exercise as well as 6th on vault and balance beam. Toronjo won a silver medal and two bronze medals at the Texas Prime Meet, a level 10 meet. She competed at the American Classic where she placed 7th on uneven bars. Toronjo suffered an injury and her gymnastics competitive career was temporarily placed on hold.

Senior Elite

Toronjo made her senior elite debut in 2014 after having to re-qualify. In early July Toronjo competed at the American Classic where she won the all-around, uneven bars and balance beam titles as well as a silver medal on floor exercise; here she qualified to the P&G National Championships. At the U.S. Classic Toronjo competed on only uneven bars and balance beam and placed 13th on both events. At the National Championships Toronjo placed 8th in the all-around but did not make the National Team.

Post-Elite

Toronjo dropped back down to Level 10 in 2015 and placed tenth at the Nastia Liukin Cup.

She will graduate from high school in the Spring of 2015.
