JAMES CITY — The Lafayette High football team’s defense knows when it has taken the fight out of its opponent.“We call it the rollover point, when they completely just give up on the game,” senior defensive lineman Gavin Byron said.
For the Poquoson High football team to succeed in its Class 2 state semifinal, the Islanders’ offensive and defensive linemen will need to step out of their scrums and into the limelight. On both sides of the ball, the Islanders have built their game in the trenches. They dig in the dirt for each yard gained and each tackle made, and they will bring that scrappy style with them when they face the Robert E. Lee Fighting Leemen at 2 p.m. Saturday.
The Grafton High girls volleyball team waited until the spotlight shone brightest to claim its first win against rival Jamestown this season. The Clippers took a 3-2 victory (25-21, 25-23, 21-25, 24-26, 15-8) against the Eagles in their VHSL Class 4 state semifinal Tuesday night. Grafton had been winless in three previous meetings against its Bay Rivers District nemesis. Grafton moves on to the state championship match against Loudoun County, a 3-0 winner over Millbrook in the other semifinal.
Grafton rallied from an eight-point deficit with 2:20 remaining to beat Jamestown 68-63.
The game was too exciting for my computer, which ran out of battery as I was writing the story. Luckily, I was able to finish on my iPhone.
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".
