SPENCER —Fasten your seat belts, North Rowan girls basketball fans. The Cavaliers’ season is off to a bumpy start. Visiting Lexington forced 29 turnovers and limited North to nine field goals Thursday night in a hard-to-watch, 55-25 season-opening victory. “How many teams are playing right now?” second-year North coach Ron Bost questioned. “Real games, right now? The truth is, we’re still gelling. I played five freshman tonight and four of them saw major minutes.
Zena Lovette, Kyala Searcy and newcomer Taylor Perkins sparked the Blue Bears to an 80-61 victory over Claflin University at clamorous New Trent Gym. “This is the team we’re supposed to be,” Searcy said, after LC (1-2) shook off some early rust and rolled to its first win. “This is who we are. After practice yesterday we realized it was time to go.”Lovette had 20 points and 11 rebounds in her first game.
CHINA GROVE — Carson senior Owen White has always been good at attracting a crowd — and Monday was no different. About 150 family members and well-wishers sardined themselves into the school’s media center, where White signed a national letter-of-intent to take his baseball skills to the University of South Carolina. “It’s a huge relief,” the right-handed pitcher and shortstop said. “That’s one chapter of my life accomplished.
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".
