WHITEHALL — Wyoming Valley West coach Pat Keating respects the quality of football played in the Lehigh Valley. “When we come through the Lehigh Tunnel and get to the Lehigh Valley, we know what kind of football to expect and from top to bottom, week in, week out, the conference here is so good,” Keating said. “We respect it so much. But we want to say we belong as well.”Keating’s Spartans showed they definitely belonged in the PIAA Class 5A tournament Friday night.
In winning 11 Patriot League titles over the past 25 seasons, Lehigh has built a reputation for extraordinary passing attacks. Of the top 10 best receiving performances in Lehigh history, only one occurred before the Mountain Hawks moved into Goodman Stadium in 1988. Of the top 10 passing performances in school history, every one has unfolded since 1988. Air Lehigh has taken the program’s fans on many pleasant rides over the past three decades.
Kevin Ronalds doesn’t know if two 12-0 teams have ever met for a District 11 championship in the 33 seasons they have been holding title games. If it has happened before, it hasn’t happened often, and Ronalds, the Palisades coach, is as excited as anyone to see what unfolds at 7 p.m. Saturday at Bethlehem Area School District Stadium.

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".
