The camera phones were on. The hopes were high. The nerves were real. The Master’s University women’s soccer team congregated inside its locker room Monday morning to watch the NAIA tournament selection show, and one reveal after another seemingly sunk the Mustangs’ chances and sent heart rates skyrocketing. “We were just waiting, waiting, waiting,” said senior Kellian Ahearn. “We went crazy,” she said.
Jonathan Brown bent it inside the far post. Sarah Stead lifted it high into the frame’s upper regions. And men’s and women’s cross country went low, low, low. The postseason is upon us at The Master’s University and with it, last Friday and Saturday, came goals in the figurative and literal sense. Men’s cross country claimed its eighth straight Golden State Athletic Conference championship up in Rocklin, near Sacramento, on Saturday. That was only the first act.
The 40-passenger bus rolled to a halt about a half hour before midnight, and one by one players from The Master’s University women’s volleyball team shuffled off. The 60 miles back from Fullerton had distanced the Mustangs from a 3-1 loss in body, not mind. Coach Allan Vince knew the bunch needed a spark. So he flagged down a straggler – a player, it turns out, who would drive the team forward down the stretch.
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".
