To get to the final four, in any sport at any level, a team has to have the ball bounce its way a time or two. Sometimes, though, teams are just so hot they don’t need to catch many breaks. The Olentangy Liberty and Mentor football teams — set to square off in today’s Division I state semifinal at Mansfield’s Arlin Field — are two sparking examples. The Patriots (11-2), winners of eight straight games, have outscored their three postseason opponents by a combined margin of 86-21.
Having coached at the high school level for 20 years, Jason Crawford knows what it’s like to step in and start building a program. This year, though, despite being his first as coach of the Big Walnut girls basketball team, he won’t have to do much building. The foundation is already in place. The Golden Eagles finished 15-9 last season, that after winning just eight games during the 2015-2016 season. In other words, they’re trending upward.
Plan on going to see the Delaware Christian girls basketball team play this winter? Get ready to hear the names Fuller, Maurer and Snouffer called … a lot. The Eagles aren’t particularly deep, or all that experienced, but longtime coach Jackie Boggs said the girls who did log some varsity minutes last season — senior Anna Fuller, junior Hannah Maurer and sophomores Abbi Maurer and Lyssi Snouffer — will be expected to log a whole lot more this time around.
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".
