The Centralia High School boys’ basketball program is one of the most storied in the state of Illinois, having reached the IHSA State Finals 24 times (the first coming in 1909), which has resulted in three state championships. That type of long-term success led the school to become the winningest high school program in the country, as it notched the program’s 2,000 win during the 2007-08 season.  That total has surpassed 2235 wins during the 2018-19 season.  Centralia is coached by Lee Bennett, the son of legendary Pittsfield coach Dave Bennett.
