PRINCETON — Brik Wedekind has wore a lot of hats at Princeton High School. He's been quarterback, point guard, pitcher, assistant basketball, baseball and football coach and custodian.

It's my first varsity job," Wedekind said Thursday morning.
Editor’s note: Here are the top 10 sports stories for 2017, which was a year full of memorable moments and sorrow:The Little Giants basketball team brought back a buzz around DePue that hasn’t been heard in the small Bureau County team in decades. Coach Charlie Klinefelter, aka the Chef, cooked up a winning recipe that saw the Little Giants win their first regional championship in 28 years (1989), defeating host Indian Creek 46-38 in 1A action.
The Storm (10-1) led just 51-48 after three quarters, but pulled ahead with a 15-5 fourth-quarter run. Tournament MVP Kale Barnett led the charge with 24 points with all-tournament Andrew Petros (14) and Nathan Paup (10) combining for 24 more. The Rockets (9-3), the defending Colmone champions, are coached by former BV coach Brad Bickett, who still teaches at BV. He praised the Storm, saying they played some old-style Storm basketball. Princeton beat Pontiac 72-52 for third place.
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".
