For the first time in 17 years, the Darien Blue Wave are state champions in boys swimming and diving. The Wave wrapped up the CIAC Class L crown during the swim finals at Wesleyan University on Wednesday, finishing with 711 points to outdistance the Pomperaug Panthers by 60 points. Pomperaug was second with 651 points and New Canaan took third place with 621 points. It’s Darien’s first state title since 2001, when the Wave won its third straight Class S championship.
With 11 underclassmen among the 15 swimmers in competition Wednesday night, the New Canaan boys swimming and diving team managed to both gain experience for the future and leave its mark on the present during the CIAC Class L swim finals at Wesleyan University. There were plenty of highlights for the Rams. Senior Peter Sloan broke a Class L record while winning the 100-yard breaststroke, and New Canaan also struck gold in the 200 freestyle relay.
There’s a smorgasbord of sports in this week’s Rams by the Numbers, as we skate onto the ice for some hockey, jump into the pool for some diving and swimming, and hit the college scene to look at few former Ram ice hockey and lacrosse stars. Final record of the New Canaan girls ice hockey team, which had its best season since 2012-13. The Rams were FCIAC runners-up and state semifinalists, and had winning streaks of eight and seven games during the campaign.
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".
