Crystal Lake South rode the hottest bat in high school baseball to a Class 4A state title on a hot Saturday in Joliet. Junior Noah Tyrrell went 3-for-4 with a home run, a triple and 5 RBI, and right-hander Andrew Engelking threw a 5-hitter with 8 strikeouts to lead the Gators past Edwardsville 8-3 at Joliet Slammers Stadium.
The Crystal Lake South baseball team's season-long formula of dependable pitching, fluid defense and relentless offense translated to the biggest win in school history in Joliet on Friday. Junior Noah Tyrrell blasted a 3-run, first-inning home run, junior right-hander Kyle Lang scattered 9 hits in a complete-game effort and the Gators played errorless defense behind him to defeat New Trier 9-3 in a Class 4A semifinal.
The Crystal Lake South baseball team spent the week preparing for the Class 4A finals in warm weather under sunny skies, but much of the prep work had already been done on cold, gray days in April and May. That was when the Gators were fighting their way through the challenging Fox Valley Conference schedule. Long considered an above-average public-school league in terms of baseball talent, the FVC was never tougher than it was this season.
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".
