Three Brevard County high school athletic departments finished among the top 10 teams in their classification in the Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup standings compiled by the FHSAA for the 2016-17 school year. Those schools were Cocoa, Merritt Island and Florida Prep. Cocoa placed sixth on the Class 5A public school list. The Tigers athletic department scored 30.8 points, with the biggest boost of the academic year coming from the state championship football team.
Thirteen months ago, Drew Parrish was a Rockledge High baseball player, helping the Raiders battle to the regional final round of the FHSAA playoffs. In 72 hours or so, he will find himself on the mound in Omaha, Neb., the starting pitcher for Florida State in its second game of the College World Series. When the Seminoles play LSU at 8 p.m. Saturday in the College World Series opener for both teams, Parrish will be watching, but he expects to be the Monday starter.
Products from three Brevard County high school baseball programs were selected Wednesday in the Major League Baseball draft. Melbourne High graduate Jake Walsh, a pitcher from Florida Southern by way of Eastern Florida State, was picked by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 16th round, the 484th player out of 1,215 taken in 40 rounds. Walsh played on Melbourne's 2012 state semifinal team. This past season with the Mocs, he went 12-1 with a 2.80 earned run average as a junior right-handed pitcher.
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".
