Tom Jenk Jr. gave the Beckman baseball team a bit of a boost. The longtime Blazers' coach, who hasn't been in the dugout this season due to a battle with a brain tumor, paid a visit to his team the day before Beckman topped Denver 7-1 to open the class 2A state baseball tournament. “He came to practice yesterday for the first time all year," said Blazer sophomore Brock Marbach, "He said, 'I've got four rings boys, I need a fifth one to fill out my hand.' He said that.
Ryne Schooley tossed a four hit shut-out as Iowa City Regina opened the class 2A state baseball tournament with a 5-0 win over Treynor. Schooley struck out seven in the victory that sent the Regals to Thursday's semifinal against Dyersville Beckman. “I threw against some really good line-ups this year and it really prepared me for those guys," said Schooley, "They're good hitters, but we got the job done." Regina opened the scoring as Mitchell Gahan crossed the plate following a Treynor error.
For the third time in four years, a Schaake captured the amateur title at the Waterloo Open. Alex Schaake followed in his older brother's footsteps, shooting 11 under par for a one stroke victory. Carson Schaake, a former Hawkeye golfer, had won the event two out of the past three years.
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".
