After West Columbus and Red Springs Girls and boys basketball teams played on consecutive nights last week, many pondered how the third meetings just seven days later would turn out. The WC Boys and Red Springs Girls each swept last Tuesday and Wednesday. The old adage, “It’s hard to beat a team three times in a season” was heard more than once. A study of college basketball results from 2006-2015 actually showed that 72 percent of the time the team that won the first two games also won the third.
The Louisburg Hurricanes softball team entered Wednesday’s doubleheader with SCC holding a 3-0 mark and outscoring opponents 42-17. Southeastern quieted the Canes bats and came away with two wins to improve to 4-0. Kailey Paul limited Louisburg to four hits, striking out four and walking two in the 4-2 game one victory. She was supported by error-free defense by her SCC teammates. Hailey Sarvis walked thrice and scored three runs for the Rams.
The Stingers jumped out to a 5-0 lead after two innings on it s way to a 10-5 win over visiting Southeastern. The Rams responded with three runs in the third, but never could quiet the Stinger bats to complete the comeback. Florence-Darlington scored two runs in the fourth and single runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to salt away the win. Gage Hammonds led SCC hitters with a double and triple in five at-bats. Zach Adams was two for five with a double and a walk.
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".
