Derby’s bid to end Olathe South’s reign as Class 6A softball champion ended with a 10-inning loss Thursday night. Olathe South advanced in a 6-5 quarterfinal victory when Maddie Swanson stroked a hit down the left-field line, scoring a teammate from send to end the game. Derby used small ball to tie the game in the seventh inning after trailing 5-4. With a runner on second and two outs, Derby’s Addison Parks chopped a ball into the infield dirt.
For at least another year, Miranda Dick has bragging rights. The Raymore-Peculiar sophomore won the 2,000-meter steeplechase April 22 at the Kansas Relays, beating younger sister Marissa Dick by 10 seconds and leading a Ray-Pec sweep of the top three spots in the race. It was just Miranda Dick’s third time competing in the event but she was determined to pull out a win in her second attempt at KU. She finished second here last year with a time of 7 minutes, 52.47 seconds.
Just a month and a half removed from winning the girls high jump at the New Balance Indoor Nationals in New York with a leap of 5 feet, 10 ¾ inches, Carlie Queen came onto the grass at the Kansas Relays on Saturday raring to set her personal best outdoors jump. All season, the Summit Christian Academy senior has chased down a 5-10 mark, a performance that would boost her confidence in time to attempt a tie of the 17-year-old Missouri high school record of 6-0.
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".
