Batavia had a clear mission in its Upstate Eight crossover matchup with visiting South Elgin Thursday night. Returning all-conference middle Libby Vedrine is a key in the Storm attack, and Batavia made it a point to not let her get going. "We served assertively," Batavia coach Lori Trippi-Payne said. "We did take their middle attack out of the game. We had to do that to beat them. Their middle attack is great."
Jacobs had a couple reasons for letting loose following a 25-23, 16-25, 25-22 win over Dundee-Crown on Tuesday night. The victory was their first in the Fox Valley Conference. It came in front of a big crowd on Jacobs' Teacher Appreciation night. And then there was the opponent. "Crown has always been our biggest rival and I think that really pushed us," Jacobs senior outside Autumn Miller said. "And we really wanted our first conference win."
Dave Mello took over the Bartlett girls basketball program two years ago from Denise Sarna, the Hawks' only head coach for the school's first 17 years. The Hawks went 22-8 in Mello's first season, winning 13 games in a row late in the year until being knocked out by Montini in the sectionals. Bartlett had to replace nine seniors in Mello's second season, and the Hawks finished 12-18. That also turned out to be Mello's final season at Bartlett.
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".
