CHESTER, Vt. – Vermont Division III soccer has strong teams year after year. Climbing the ranks is not at all easy. One school, which features a team knocking at the door most autumns, is the Green Mountain Girls Soccer team. Last fall the Chieftains finished 16-3 bowing in the semi-finals to Stowe 2-0. Much of the same cast returns and they are off to a 4-0 start and have their hand raised to knock on the door again. The team has shown plenty of offense in the early going.
BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – The Bellows Falls Girls Soccer team is 0-4 on the season, but “We are getting better all the time. We are very young, we start six freshmen, but we are getting more players now with a history of playing soccer, which allows us to have more tactical play,” said veteran Terrier Coach John Broadley. Wins have been few and far between in the program since Broadley’s teams of 2011 and 2012, which combined for a 16-9-2 mark, reaching the semi-finals in 2011.
The leaves on many a tree are beginning to turn early. That hardly ever happens before the official beginning of fall, which this time around falls on Friday. This is also one of the warmest Septembers I ever remember. Don’t tell me there is no such thing as global warming. Hopefully persons from a number of communities will be warmed by today’s column:The Bellows Falls Field Hockey team is as hot as the weather, likely even hotter.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
