There was nothing that was going to stand in the way of the Lakeridge swim teams last week. The Pacers, swimming against Canby at Canby Swim Center on Jan. 11, battled illness, absences and the Cougars, and overcame all three, the Pacer boys winning 97-72 and the Lakeridge girls winning 108-62. While pleased with the wins, Lakeridge coach Derek Abbott said his teams still have their eyes set on the biggest prizes. "Our goal is bigger than any single dual meet.
This one was big. The West Linn boys swim team stepped up big-time last week, beating Lake Oswego 86-84 on Jan. 11 at Lake Oswego District Pool, and in the process, handing Lake Oswego its first league loss since 2010. "We're much stronger this year and we've got more club swimmers," explained West Linn junior Kevin Vu, who came through with wins in both the 50-yard freestyle and 100 butterfly, as well as swimming on one of his team's two winning relays.
The Lake Oswego girls swim team knew what lay ahead last week. Swimming without two of their mainstays — juniors Alyssa Gustaff and Maya Clydesdale — against talented West Linn at Lake Oswego District Pool on Jan. 11, the Lakers nonetheless stepped up and took their best shots against the Lions. While Lake Oswego didn't win — the Lakers dropped a 106-64 decision to the Lions — they did compete well and learned about themselves along the way.
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".
