Mason Thomas decided to give up wrestling when he was a freshman. Last fall, the Ankeny High School junior also stopped playing football. The 6-foot, 200-pound Thomas elected to focus his energy on the sport of rugby, and it turned out to be a good move. Thomas participated in the USA Rugby High School All-American Camp last week in Casa Grande, Az. He was one of only two Iowans among the 184 players invited to the camp. “It was super fun, but it was really hard,” Thomas said of the five-day camp.
When Keanna Williams returns to the Ankeny Centennial girls’ basketball lineup later this month, the senior point guard may not get her old position back. That’s because Sydney Wycoff doesn’t want to give it up. Wycoff, a senior, took over the point guard duties after Williams suffered a torn ACL during an AAU tournament last summer. She has led the Jaguars to an 8-2 record and a No. 6 ranking in Class 5A heading into Friday’s home game against Ames.
The game of softball has taken Kendyl Lindaman to a lot of different places. In 2020, it could take her to the Olympics in Tokyo. “It’s always been my dream to play in the Olympics, and I think this would be a great start…making this team,” Lindaman said on Sunday as she tried to catch a connecting flight in Chicago for the USA Softball Women’s National Team Selection Camp in Florida. “Just being able to play with the best players in the country.
“That was God,” Adam Thielen said. “That play right there was God.”
So apparently God is a Vikings' fan now. I wonder if God wants the Vikings to win the Super Bowl, or if he just wanted them to beat the Saints. That would have been my follow-up question for Adam.
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".
