TORRINGTON: Calling all former Torrington High School soccer and basketball alumni!

Come on back to your THS roots and see if you still have it.

Below is the press release from the Raiders Varsity Alumni Club.  

-The Varsity Alumni Club will sponsor Torrington High School women and men Alumni basketball games on Friday, November 28th at the Torrington Armory. The women tip off at 5:30 p.m. and the men at 7 p.m.

 All former THS Players are welcome to attend. Players should bring a dark shirt and a white shirt. Everyone should arrive 1/2 hour before game time to allow for warm ups and organizing of the teams.

There is no charge but donations to The Varsity Alumni Club will be accepted.

For more information, please call Mario longobucco at 860-307-5945 or email at

The men's soccer alumni shall play the same day at 1pm at the new THS turf complex.

The day's events are all sponsored by the Varsity Alumni Club, the nearly 70 year old service organization that is enjoying a resurgence, with a renewed commitment to increase membership.

The VAC distributes a minimum of $6,000 a year to THS scholar athletes thru their scholarship program.

The club has also recently donated $4,000 to the City of Torrington to be used for safety netting at the new turf complex.

The safety netting became necessary after the State trimmed trees on the highway side of the field.

The Turf Committee is still accepting donations for the netting which they hope to have installed by April of 2015.
