Monroe Center High School competed in basketball and did so quite well. It is probable that the school competed
in baseball and track as well. School team nickname, colors, fight song, and team records and coach's names of MCHS
teams are all being sought.
The boys basketball team of Monroe Center HS won a total of four District titles (www.ihsa.org).
The titles came in three different decades with three of the titles coming in an eight year period.
The team records and coach's names for these and other MCHS basketball teams are not currently available.
