CANTON – Alivia Merkel is living proof that you can be under the weather and over the rainbow at the same time. "I can't believe it!" the Lexington senior exclaimed. "I have no idea how it happened ... it was them." "Them" are freshman Olivia Newman, sophomore Tessa Gerhardt and senior Allie Stoyko. They joined Merkel, who battled the flu all week, on a 200 freestyle relay that went from unheralded to Lex's highest medalist in a historic state swim meet for the program.
CANTON – On paper this wasn't supposed to happen. Good thing for eight area swimmers, their fate was decided in water. Ignoring where they were seeded, five girls and three boys defied the odds by earning All-Ohio honors and, in three cases, Division II medals Thursday at the state swim meet inside the C.T. Branin Natatorium. The first day of the meet ended on a downer with Lexington being disqualified for a wardrobe violation in the boys 400 relay.
CANTON – For Colonel Crawford and Galion, Thursday's exit from the state swim meet actually cracked open the door to a promising future. Eight of the 11 swimmers representing those two schools inside the C.T. Branin Natatorium are expected to return to their programs next season. Colonel Crawford's quartet of senior Pierce Krassow, junior Jillianne Gregg and freshmen Cassidy Vogt and Kaisey Speck competed in the Division II 200 medley relay and 200 free relay.
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".
