There’s not many easy-access options for alpine skiing while growing up in Greensboro, North Carolina.But when Laramie High School junior Nicholas Fadial and his family moved to Laramie when he was 8 years old, it didn’t take long for the outdoorsy clan to start taking the short jaunt to the Snowy Range Ski & Recreation Area in the winter.“It gave me something to do during the winter, and as the years went by, I started to love it more and more,” Fadial said.
The snow was a little late coming after practices began Nov. 20 for the Laramie High School alpine teams.Other than a couple of trips to the mountain after days of dry-land training and workouts, the skiers took full advantage when competition began last weekend at the Snowy Range & Recreation Area.Not only was it the first slalom races of the season, but it also afforded the Plainsmen and Lady Plainsmen more practice where it counts the most — on the slopes.
CHEYENNE – It was a rivalry that got a bit too heated, with tempers boiling over late in the game.The Cheyenne East and Central boys basketball game Thursday was mired with a bench-clearing fight with 42 seconds remaining.When all was said and done, East claimed the Rick Lewis Memorial traveling trophy with a 58-50 win in a packed Storey Gym.
That sports fans is how to be successful against the Patriots: physical defense keeping Brady off the field and limited on it; an effective running game with just enough play action passes for larger yard chunks; and long drives ending with touchdowns. #AFCChampionship
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".
