EAST LANSING >> Mistakes nearly kept Madison Heights Bishop Foley from reaching the Division 3 state championship. On Saturday, one mistake led the Ventures to a state championship.

He connected on a pitch to centerfield that brought the crowd to its feet.
EAST LANSING >> Entering Friday’s Division 3 semifinal, the Madison Heights Bishop Foley baseball team hadn’t been challenged in the postseason. Outscoring its five playoff opponents 67-1, it appeared the only thing that could get in the Ventures way was themselves. Foley did manage to get in its own way on Friday, but the Ventures overcame their mistakes to hold off Caro for a 3-2 win from Michigan State University.
When the Madison Heights Bishop Foley baseball program was handed over to Greg Fettes at just 22 years of age, not many knew just what to expect. Now, in only his second year with the team, Fettes has the Ventures on the verge of restoring their championship history. Bishop Foley takes the field on Friday morning when it faces Caro in the Division 3 semifinal from Michigan State University. The Ventures are just two wins away from their first state championship since 2013.
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".
