Central High School basketball team Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The Central High School girls basketball team of Lonaconing holds the Allegany County basketball record for consecutive wins having won 65 games in a row. This was over the course of three seasons; 1922, 1923, and 1924.

Central’s winning streak was snapped by Beall High School in 1924 when they were defeated by a score of 36 to 35 in a Western Maryland Interscholastic League (WMIL) championship playoff game. The WMIL was, at one time, the oldest continuous high school athletic league in the country.
