FRANKFORT – Things proved to be a little more suspenseful than Chris Smith would have preferred when his Bolingbrook girls basketball team met Lincoln-Way East in Thursday’s first-place showdown of SouthWest Suburban Conference Blue squads. But after watching his Raiders hang on for a 47-46 win over the host Griffins in a matchup of teams that entered with only two losses each, Smith will no doubt take the close call.
NEW LENOX – Wednesday certainly turned out to be a special evening at Providence Catholic’s Sacred Heart Gym. First of all, nine members of the wrestling team were recognized on senior night for helping the Celtics’ program re-establish its place among the elite in Illinois. Then Providence turned in an impressive performance against longtime rival Marist, as it only dropped three matches in a 59-10 nonconference victory and improved to 18-10 on the season.
JOLIET – Two girls basketball teams that got off to slow starts, but have responded nicely since then, met on Tuesday in a rescheduled Southwest Prairie Conference game to see which one would continue its recent successes. Minooka jumped out to a 30-22 halftime lead at Joliet West and then never allowed the hosts to get any closer than four points the rest of the way as it went on to capture a 55-45 win for its ninth victory in its last 10 games.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
