BOLINGBROOK – Plainfield North senior Kelle Knopp made a nice spin move in the lane and scored to create a 2-2 tie with 5:47 left in the first quarter. After that, it was full-blown learning experience for the Tigers. When the Bolingbrook girls basketball team puts its collective mind to playing defense the way it did in Thursday night’s championship game of the Class 4A Bolingbrook Regional, the Raiders are close to unstoppable.
During the 2017 professional baseball season, we followed the progress of 17 players who grew up in the game in the Joliet area. At the major league level, Washington right-handed pitcher Tanner Roark (Wilmington), Atlanta right-hander Mike Foltynewicz (Minooka) and Dodgers lefty Tony Cingrani (Lincoln-Way Central) again will be headliners. Roark, whom the Nationals have under their control through 2019, will make a reported $6.475 million this year.
The weather was the culprit last week as snow caused postponement of all boys high school basketball games scheduled Friday night. The one game that was moved up to Thursday night – Romeoville at Plainfield North – was a big one, as the Tigers came away with a 57-53 upset victory. That outcome does not guarantee Romeoville will not make the top four when online voting for sectional seeds is conducted this week, but from this vantage point, that seems likely to happen.
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".
