For the second straight school year, I offer a look back at the top athletes and more in the Lake Country/Mukwonago coverage zone. I was tempted to cheat and just say "Arrowhead golf in general" after both the boys and girls teams won state titles this season. But the Arrowhead girls were particularly dominant, firing 624 and finishing a staggering 51 strokes ahead of second-place Middleton at the state meet in Madison.
Grafton catcher Amanda Parsons was named second-team All State by the Wisconsin Fastpitch Coaches Association, one of three Grafton players earning WFSCA accolades. Parsons, who batted .543 in conference play and belted six home runs overall this year, was also named North Shore Conference Player of the Year. She slugged 1.051 in conference and reached base at a .660 clip.
What a loaded year for the Lake Country/Now Newspapers coverage zone, with state titles all over the place in the fall, winter and spring seasons. Take a look at the WIAA team and individual championships in the 2016-17 school year:Brookfield East not only made it to Level 4 for the first time in school history, but behind a first-year head coach (Ben Farley) and star running back overcoming injury (Sam Santiago-Lloyd), the Spartans laid claim to the Division 2 crown in 2016.
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".
