Colony High freshman volleyball standout Starr Williams won’t have to worry about the stress that can come with the recruiting process. She has already made a decision. The 6-foot-3 outside hitter has made a verbal commitment to Long Beach State. Williams was also considering UC Irvine. She is a much-heralded freshman with likely more college scholarship offers to come, but opted not to wait to see what other offers might come her way.
One school is developing a pipeline to the Inland Empire when it comes to recruiting football players and it isn’t the two closest either. Colony wide receiver Michael Ezeike is the latest local standout to commit to the University of Oregon, doing so after an impressive visit to that institution the past weekend. “I had been there before over the summer but it was fun go back there when there was a game. The atmosphere was unbelievable,” he said.
Last year Silverado had a young football team. So it was content with its accomplishments – a Desert Sky League title, an 11-3 season and a berth in the Division 9 championship game, where it lost to Cerritos Valley Christian. This year the mission for the Hawks (11-1) is to come away with nothing less than a CIF championship. The next step in that quest comes on Friday when they’ll host Grace Brethren (10-2) in a CIF Southern Section Division 8 semifinal showdown.
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".
