We have been looking at some of the past sectional champions in boys basketball recently. Two weeks ago we looked at the 1970 champion Waynetown team and last week we looked at the final pre-consolidation champion, Crawfordsville. So where will we go this week?Way back. I am talking way, way back. Not quite to the beginning of basketball in Montgomery County — but close. Today we look at the 1927 Crawfordsville Sectional.Quick, who was winner? Any guesses? Here is a hint.
It was only fitting that Crawfordsville and Waveland met in final basketball sectional prior to consolidation in 1971. Why was it fitting? These were the two teams which had the most sectional championship trophies in their respective school’s trophy cases. Crawfordsville entered the final tournament with 32 titles, while Waveland had collected the hardware six times, one more than Wingate. The two schools had appeared in the most championships games as well.

If I had a nickel for every hat, button and bumper sticker I’ve seen in Sullivan County over the past 40 years that said “Casinos Mean Jobs,” I’d have enough nickels to actually buy me a casino.But sadly I don’t, so instead of owning a casino I just write about them.Fortunately for those living in Sullivan County and the rest of the region, their newest neighbor has plenty of nickels.K.T.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
