We’ve arrived at that juncture for volleyball at Ukiah High School. The double Brown-Evans express has had this schedule in the past week: Thursday, Sept. 14 - Rancho Cotate; Saturday, Sept. 16- Ukiah Grass Tourney; Tuesday, Sept. 19 - Casa Grande (away); and Thursday, Sept. 21 - Santa Rosa. Oh, and this weekend; a big traveling tournament to American Canyon! Whew, and these players and parents and coaches have other lives as well. For a retired guy, the above schedule is overwhelming.
Seniors Karamia Putnam and Grant Miller picked their ways through the hills, valleys, lake sides, long concrete expanses, narrow tree corridors, and fast downhills to lead the Ukiah High cross country teams to a respectable finish among thousands of Redwood Empire runners at the annual Viking Opener at Spring Lake in Santa Rosa Saturday, Sept. 16 on a perfect autumn morning. Putnam grabbed a medal as the 10th fastest junior-senior woman to complete the 2 mile course in 13:00 minutes flat.
Ukiah High School’s volleyball spikers are finishing up one busy week, as they ripen into the throes of the North Bay League schedule. The Wildcat ladies have chalked up big mileage, motoring north to Humboldt County for five games last weekend, testing Santa Rosa waters midweek and finishing off Thursday night, Sept. 14, at UHS. All in all, their record for the 6 total contests was 3-3; they now stand at 1-1 in league and overall is 4-4. Let’s break it down.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
