Kolby Pauwels sent the Snake Pit into orbit and snagged his small piece of local sports history on Tuesday night. The 20-year-old Kamloops Venom runner — who was diagnosed with cancer when he was two and underwent unproven proton radiation to survive — scored with one minute and 25 seconds left in a 10-minute, non-sudden-death overtime period to give his team a 10-9 win over the Vernon Tigers in the fifth and deciding game of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League (TOJLL) final.
The Kamloops Broncos have worked their tails off at main camp, which began last Monday and ends on Friday at Hillside Stadium. Their rear ends are now the primary targets of the Valley Huskers, who will be at Hillside Stadium for Week 1 of the B.C. Football Conference season on July 29. “If you want to watch some hard smack-mouth football, make the drive up to Kamloops and watch us kick their butt,” Huskers’ defensive lineman Travis Dietrich told the Chilliwack Progress earlier this week.
Eight straight losses have the Kamloops RiverDogs in need of a confidence boost before the BC Baseball College Prep League playoffs. Kamloops, in its final weekend of league action, will play a pair of doubleheaders — against the hometown West Kelowna D Backs on Saturday and versus the Cloverdale Nationals in the Tournament Capital on Sunday. “We’ve been playing good teams and a couple games didn’t go our way,” said Rhys McKenzie, who will graduate from the midget ranks after this season.
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".
