Justin Amason
The Centralia Sports Hall of Fame
2013 Individual Award Winner


   In a long line of great distance runners in the history of the Centralia High School track and field and cross country programs, this 1999 CHS graduate and 2013 HOF inductee is among the best!

   In cross country Amason was a two-time All-State selection, and he won a Class 2A sectional title in a loaded field in his senior season.  For his work as a senior Amason was named the South Runner of the Year by the Illinois Track and Cross Country Coaches Association.

   On the track Amason won four individual sectional titles in his career, while also running on three relay teams that also captured sectional championships.  He won five medals at the IHSA Class 2A State Track and Field meets in his career, with his highest finish coming when he took second as a senior in the 1,600-meter run.  At that same meet, he was third in the 800-meter run and as a junior he was third in the 1,600 after placing seventh as a sophomore.

   After his days at Centralia were done Amason accepted a scholarship to run at the University of Kentucky where his specialties were the 1,500 and 800-meter runs.
