Returning to the track wasn’t meant to lead to this. Daniel Tapia’s mission was to build speed for the marathon. Apparently the 30-year-old distance ace has got more speed than he thought, casting himself back into the national spotlight circling an oval.
Rest of the Best Here are five other athletes that were considered for The Herald’s Male Athlete of the Year: Emilio Martinez, Palma >> The Herald’s Offensive Player of the Year in football, Martinez rushed for a school-record 2,481 yards and a county-record 39 touchdowns in 13 games. Bound for the University of San Diego on a football scholarship, the senior was at his best on the biggest stage, rushing for 1,013 yards and 15 touchdowns in four playoff games.
To this day, Danae Snell has her first field hockey stick in the trunk of her car and a faded basketball that has absorbed more punishment from pavement or hardwood than leather deserves. Her passion for the two sports is undeniable. Her desire to get better never wavered. The determination to be a champion was contagious. It’s too bad The Herald’s Female Athlete of the Year was not recruited to play more sports at North Salinas High.
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".
