High school winter sports in the Coachella Valley are slowing down a bit for the next couple weeks with schools on winter break, but over the weekend, wrestling teams from one school showed they’re just starting to find a groove with a massive DVL race to come. The Palm Desert boys’ wrestling team took second place overall out of the 24 squads that competed in this weekend’s John W. North Husky Invitational, led by Troy Mantanona’s first-place finish at 160 pounds.
Thursday night around the valley capped off the first full week of Desert Valley League action and produced several intriguing and down-to-the-wire results. Here are the highlights from high school sports around the Coachella Valley on Wednesday and Thursday:The cliché “third time’s the charm” rarely actually fits, but the Palm Desert boys’ soccer team executed it to perfection Thursday evening in a 1-0 victory over rival La Quinta.
After five years of a decisively one-way rivalry between the Palm Desert and La Quinta soccer teams, the fire inside both squads still burns plenty bright. The Blackhawks have won eight of 10 matches against the Aztecs since the start of the 2012-13 season – a stretch that has led to five Desert Valley League titles for La Quinta.

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".
