As seniors, Mosher, Meyer and Yahn were back on the court at the Resch Center, trying to capture another state championship in the final matches of their storied careers. In a back-and-forth battle in the state semifinals, Waterloo had Lake Country Lutheran on the ropes. Up 14-11 in the fifth and decisive set, the Lightning rattled off the last five points to steal the set and the match in a Division 3 state semifinal match on Friday afternoon at the Resch Center.
However, their ultimate goal came up three wins shy. The Warriors ran into the top-ranked team in Division 1, Oconomowoc, in the WIAA state quarterfinals. The Raccoons showed why they were favorites to win their first state title. With a nice balance of height, athleticism and strong hitters, Oconomowoc went on to beat Waunakee 25-15, 25-12, 25-22, ending the Warriors’ dream season at the Resch Center. “I’m really proud of my team,” Waunakee coach Anne Denkert said.
It was a celebration unlike any other for boys hockey players in the Sun Prairie program. The Cardinals had just captured their first state title in the 1996-97 season in a come-from-behind overtime; the 13 seniors, six juniors and three sophomores couldn’t hold in their excitement any longer. “We really didn’t know what to do ourselves, because we’d never won the state championship before,” said Nick Hanrahan, who was a senior forward on the squad.
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".
