St. Viator athletic director Martin Jennings fondly recalled Joe Ryback's profound care for his baseball players, as well as his ability to stand out in a crowd. Ryback, an assistant baseball coach at St. Viator and an assistant football coach at Wauconda, died unexpectedly on Saturday. He was 33. Ryback, an Island Lake resident, had been an assistant coach at St. Viator for the last seven seasons, including the last three seasons as the head coach of the sophomore baseball team.
Entering her freshman year at Lakes, Megan Heuser debated the pros and cons of playing high school tennis. Already an established player in the Midwest in the USTA circuit, Heuser longed for a different experience in the sport. "Since middle school, I was thinking should I play or not play," Heuser said. Lakes coach Bryan Plinske also wondered if Heuser would play for his team. He's been keeping an eye on her. "We've seen her around the courts for a long time, about five years or so," he said.
Dreams are an enduring theme for the Soto boys soccer program this season. Competing in their first season in the IHSA, the Wolves are aiming to make their mark rather than just settling into playing higher competition on a regular basis. If Saturday's showing on Opening Day of the 15th Annual PepsiCo Showdown Boys is any indication, the Wolves' program is set for big things this fall.
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".
