BEACON FALLS — The Naugatuck boys swim team knew Tuesday’s final dual meet of the season against Woodland was an important last chance to swim competitively before the championship season. But longtime Naugy coach Jim McKee pointed to that meet against the Hawks as being critical for another reason. “Whenever you swim a Valley opponent, you want to swim well,” McKee said after the Greyhounds claimed a 95-85 victory.
Longtime Woodland track coach Jeff Lownds knows how difficult it is for a team to translate success at the Naugatuck Valley League championship meet to the state level. So despite overall results that didn’t jump off the page — the Woodland boys finished 11th in Class S and the girls placed 22nd in Class M — last weekend at the Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven, Lownds said the Hawks represented themselves well in state competition.
BEACON FALLS — An 11-day break between the Woodland boys swim team’s final two meets of the regular season was just what the doctor ordered for coach Tom Currier and the Hawks. “It’s actually pretty nice,” Currier said. “We have a just week just to train and get us ready for the end of the year.”Woodland’s most recent meet was Feb. 2 against Holy Cross. The Hawks have been hard at work since then, and they won’t reenter dual-meet action until Tuesday’s regular-season finale against Naugatuck.
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".
