It's also one of the most important positions in the sport, which explains why the 2017 Fruitport volleyball team finds itself on the verge of playing for a Class B state championship. The Trojans have enjoyed a resurgent season thanks in large part to the playoff junior middle blockers Kylie Oberlin and Jordyn Carlyle. "Jordyn actually changed positions this year," said Fruitport head coach Nicole Bayle.
If that's the case, the Grand Haven girls swim team could be looking at an awfully big payday this weekend at the Division 1 state meet at Oakland University. The Buccaneers have been putting plenty of "yards in the bank" this season, according to their head coach, Doug Thorne. "This is a wonderful group. The 14 girls that are going to the state meet this weekend have earned that through their hard work this season," he said. "This group has been our primary point-getters throughout the season.
The Trojans have had a flair for the dramatic this postseason, often taking on early deficits in each set of their matches, only to surge ahead and play off the emotional wave the team creates with its stingy defense and powerful outside hitting. That was the recipe for success once again Tuesday night at Mason County Central High School when Fruitport took on Cadillac in the Class B quarterfinals.
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".
