Reality looks like Waukee coach Scott Carlson shaking the hand of Des Moines Roosevelt assistant P.J. Hedrington at midfield on Friday night. One smiled while the other frowned, and behind stood the scoreboard that told the whole story. “We’ve been there, man,” Carlson said, his smiling slowly vanishing as he tried to console his friend. “We’ve been there.”Waukee beat Roosevelt, 48-13, on Friday night here at Drake Stadium.
U.S. Cellular hosts a Most Valuable Coaches program that recognizes high school coaches around the country. As of Tuesday, thousands of nominations were whittled down to 50 semifinalists. And get this — 14 Iowa coaches were among them. The program, which honors high school coaches who lead by example, strengthen their teams and gives back to their communities, features a prize of a $50,000 donation to the charitable organization of their choice or their high school athletic department.
Class 4A’s district play begins this week. Other classes will probably shrug, since they’re already into their third week of district competition. But the point remains the same: These games all matter now. This is not to say the others didn’t, of course. But these games count toward the district standings. Point differentials will be calculated, and they have, in fact, been important. Last year, the point differential was needed to decide the playoff qualifiers out of two 4A districts.
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".
