Loyola cross country coach Lalo Diaz knows how to produce champions. He helped Mark Matusak and Elias Gedyon win championships. Now he has another champion. Shane Bissell, a senior headed to Cal, won the Southern Section Division 1 championship on Saturday morning in Riverside in the closest race of the day. He edged Colin Fitzgerald of Crescenta Valley. Bissell ran 14:39.4. Fitzgerald was at 14:39.9. “It was pretty crazy,” Bissell said.
In the sprawling Los Angeles Unified School District, there are schools known for their historic success in specific sports. Crenshaw in basketball. Palisades in tennis. And Belmont in cross-country. “We’re back on the map,” Belmont coach Roman Gomez said on a cloudless Saturday morning in Woodland Hills, where the Sentinels won their 20th City Section boys’ cross-country title.
Scot Ruggles, the football coach at Harvard-Westlake since 2012, has resigned. Ruggles produced a very good offense through the years but the Wolverines have had trouble developing the numbers needed for theÂ program to compete against top private schools. It will be the big challenge for anyone hired to replace him. The school dropped its junior varsity team several years ago even though Harvard-Westlake has a good feeder program in its middle school.
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".
