Kolt Byers improved so much in the high jump over the last nine months that he actually accomplished his goals in reverse. The Bermudian Springs sophomore now has a state championship to his name, but still has yet to break the school's modest outdoor record. If things continue their recent course, the Eagles' top outdoor mark will be eviscerated in their first meet against Littlestown on April 10. Byers has been soaring past the mark for the last few weeks.
A lot of swimmers don't like the outside lane. Being assigned to it means they're already an underdog. Falling behind means swimming through the wake of other swimmers and only being able to see the leaders in one direction. The Gettysburg swimmers instead choose to believe in "outside smoke," inverting the narrative to gain a psychological advantage.Entering last week's District 3 Class 2A Swimming Championships, Gus Douds had barely even been fast enough to qualify for the second heat.
Somehow, someway the Gettysburg swimming coaches believed they'd finagle a District 3 Class 2A medal out of their freestyle relays. The Warrior boys - Jacob Nelson, Cameron Bishop, Jared Herr and Nico DeAngelo - made sure to satisfy when they claimed a fourth place in the 200 free relay last Friday at Cumberland Valley.
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".
