CEDAR RAPIDS — Three members of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders have been selected to be part of a United States team participating in December’s World Junior ‘A’ Challenge international hockey tournament in Nova Scotia, Canada. Defenseman Chase Blackmun and forwards Nathan Smith and Graham Slaggert are on the 22-man U.S. roster, which consists of players from the United States Hockey League. Blackmun is a Massachusetts-Lowell college commit who has two goals and five assists in 11 games this season.
CEDAR RAPIDS — Junior quarterback Matt Sacia of Wartburg was named Offensive Most Valuable Player of the Iowa Conference, the league announced Thursday. Sacia threw for 1,995 yards and 24 touchdowns to help the Knights to an unbeaten regular season (10-0) and a spot in the NCAA Division III playoffs. Wartburg hosts Franklin College of Indiana (8-2) in a first-round game Saturday at noon. Wartburg’s Rick Willis was named the IIAC Coach of the Year.
CEDAR RAPIDS — If you can’t beat ‘em, beat ‘em up. If they beat you up, trade for ‘em. Let’s just say Marc McLaughlin of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders probably feels a little more comfortable having Kyle Looft as a teammate than an opponent. McLaughlin returned to the C.R. lineup two weeks ago after missing the first month of the United States Hockey League season with a separated shoulder. He received that injury in a preseason game after taking a hit from Kyle Looft.
@CoachMcKowen Dang! That was always my day off back in the day, and on my itinerary! Bet I saw you there all the time. Thinking a trip with you, me and @KennedyBBall might be in order. Brooks is invited, too, of course. LOL.
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".
