Bill & Mildred Castleman
The Centralia Sports Hall of Fame
1997 VIP Award Winner


Bill and Mildred Castleman were fixtures at Centralia High School sporting events for 7 decades. Both attended CTHS during one of the glory ages of sports. Mildred mentioned that three of her four years in school the basketball team placed at state. 

Bill was a member of the famed “Wonder Five” team of 1941.  Win or lose, the Castlemans were always faithful followers.  They were bundled up on a cold night at a football game when most have departed, or you could see them at every home game of the basketball Orphans and Annies. 

Age and health issues limited their attendance at some events you could be assured they were sitting next to the radio listening intently to game broadcasts.
