The old joke about getting to Carnegie Hall can apply to virtually any big-time venue, and Craig's Adrian Profumo knows it comes down to one word — practice. The district round of the annual Elks National Hoop Shoot Free Throw Contest brought young basketball players to Glenwood Springs Jan. 13 as they steadied themselves at the free throw line to move on to the state level. Adrian won the competition's division for 8- to 9-year-old girls, sinking 14 of 25 shots.
Last year saw Craig Middle School girls basketball teams sweep the district tournament, and it looks like they're already planning a repeat. CMS girls dominated during a weekend tournament in Frisco, both seventh- and eight-grade A-Teams going 4-0 in games hosted Jan. 13 by Summit Middle School. The eighth-graders not only won but won huge in each game, meeting teams not usually on the CMS schedule — 43-7 over Carbondale, 47-3 over St. Clair, 39-5 over Basalt and 48-9 over Gilpin.
A huntress is making her way to Alaska, and she's planning to come back home with something more than a mere animal slung over her shoulder. Northwest Colorado native Holli Salazar will compete in Alaska Fighting Championship 136, stepping into action against Maura Tynanes Jan. 17 at Anchorage's Alaska Airlines Center, an event that's part of Ultimate Fighting Championship and will air live on UFC Fight Pass.

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".
