Early in his Appoquinimink baseball career, Ryan Steckline would tighten up in a sticky situation. Once he learned to embrace the pressure, he became the Jaguars’ go-to guy. “When I was less mature, I just wasn’t as tough as I grew to be,” Steckline said. “I would get nervous with people on. But when I had people on base this year, I just felt more confident. “I knew my defense would make the plays. I trusted every pitch.
The Delmar softball team went through some sharp peaks and valleys over the last three years. The one constant was Avery Wheatley, who kept playing hard and motivating her teammates whether they were winning or losing. Wheatley and the Wildcats were at their best this season, going all the way to the DIAA championship game before falling to Milford.
Mike Drake knows that in lacrosse, the danger increases with each step. The closer you get to the cage, the more likely it is that you’ll be hit. Especially when you’re 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, often 4 inches shorter and 60 pounds lighter than the defenders eager to pound you. But that’s where the goal is, and Drake is willing to trade some pain for some gain. “Contact is never something I’ve ever been scared of,” he said. “You can’t be scared to go into the middle.
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".
