Even on a girls' lacrosse team as balanced as Guilderland's, Hayley Kmack's influence could be striking. The Lady Dutch senior had a goal and an assist in the sectional final against Shenendehowa. That may not sound like a lot, but no one on the team had more than two total points in the 9-8 Guilderland overtime victory. "As a team, our most meaningful accomplishment was easily the Section II title, but I think it was made even more meaningful in how we won it," Kmack said.
When Albany Academy lost its reigning Section II champ less than one full match into his senior season, Conners O'Brien was ready to step right in. The junior is the Times Union's Athlete of the Year for boys' tennis because he kept the sectional singles title in the Cadets' family. After Michael Haelen went down with a nagging elbow injury, O'Brien managed a No. 2 seed for the postseason and took home the crown. "I kept a level head, and patience really helped me," O'Brien said.
Nathan Waterfield has been going hard all week, and he doesn't anticipate a whole lot of Father's Day downtime. He seemingly couldn't be prouder to work. The 33-year-old, who several years ago built his own home, has created a national-level sports venue in his virtual backyard — his wife's hometown, where the couple now raises two young children.
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".
