Saying its sportsmanship rules had been violated, the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association levied harsh punishments on both St. Joseph Regional and Pope John High School on Monday afternoon. The two schools were involved in a bench-clearing altercation at the end of their football semifinal match-up won by the Green Knights 28-7. This prompted a hearing by the NJSIAA’s Controversies Committee on Nov. 30.
The 2017 high school football season ended with North Jersey claiming six team champions, including two undefeated teams. It also marks the end of an era as the current playoff format will be discontinued. Here's Darren Cooper's take on the biggest things to happen this fall on the North Jersey gridiron. The era of sectional championships has ended in New Jersey for public schools.
It’s not quite the overhaul it needs, but let’s just say it looks better than ever. At Monday’s New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association general membership meeting, almost 300 school officials gathered and passed three new proposals. Two are significant, including one that allows large schools to co-op with certain restrictions in place. The football one is titanic. Next year, sectional finals will not be the last game of the high school football season.
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".
