The Westmont High School girls basketball team had more downs than ups during the past non-league portion of their current basketball schedule. But now that the league season has arrived, those early bumps in the road have begun to pay major dividends. The Warriors grabbed an early lead in the Blossom Valley Athletic League’s Santa Teresa West Division last week by knocking off the Prospect Panthers 50-21 on Jan. 11.
Westmont High School boys basketball player T.C. Wegner showed how important free-throw shooting can be in two Warriors victories last week. Led by Wegner’s 29 points from the charity stripe, Westmont bounced back from a disappointing first week of league play to even their Blossom Valley Athletic League Mt. Hamilton Division record at 2-2 and thrust themselves back into the thick of the early-season title chase.
Cupertino, expected to be among the contenders for the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division championship, rebounded from a pair of losses to square their De Anza record at 2-2 last week with solid wins over Wilcox and Homestead. “These two wins were huge. We needed something positive to feel good about ourselves,” said Cupertino coach Craig Ellegood.
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".
