Stop me if you've heard this one before: BFA-St. Albans and Essex are 1-and-2 in Vermont high school boys hockey. OK, don't really stop me. The phrase is well-worn for a reason in hockey circles and this season is no exception. The sport's longtime blue-bloods — they've combined for 32 state championships and 47 title-game berths — once again occupy the pinnacle as we careen toward the halfway point of the season.
SOUTH BURLINGTON - The hosts had their sights set on a statement win. The guests wanted none of it. And once the tide turned in the second quarter, it didn't reverse course. Jamison Evans and Jacob Lorman combined for 46 points to spur an under-the-weather Rutland squad to a 73-54 win over South Burlington in high school boys basketball on Thursday night.
No need to spice it up, the top five teams in my high school boys basketball power rankings look exactly the same as last week. Nobody lost any ground there. But the same can't be said for the next five. A resurgent Burlington rejoins the top 10 along with newcomer Fair Haven — and the latter is one of several Division II clubs sporting a sweet resume knocking on the door to join the party.
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".
