Playing less than 2 miles apart, the girls soccer teams from Mountain View and St. Francis highs suffered similar fates March 6. Both squads lost Northern California playoff games on penalty kicks, despite creating several more chances than their opponents. Host Mountain View played Granite Bay to a 1-1 tie before falling 4-2 on penalty kicks. Meanwhile, St. Francis lost 4-3 on PKs to visiting Woodland after the teams were tied at 2 at the end of regulation and overtime.
After two rounds of the Northern California Division I basketball playoffs, the St. Francis High girls have made it clear that they are not easily intimidated. The Lancers went on the road and defeated a pair of higher-seeded teams to reach the semifinals. “My team is so competitive,” St. Francis coach Sami Field-Polisso said. “They don’t care who we’re playing and what we’re up against.”The No. 10 Lancers (16-12) were up against a lot in Saturday’s quarterfinals.
Down two goals to start the fourth quarter, the Mountain View High boys lacrosse team rallied to beat rival Los Altos 12-10 last week. The visiting Spartans outscored the Eagles 4-0 in the final quarter of the March 6 league game. Mountain View coach Bill Kurz said his team’s “defense and offense played big” in the final stanza. There were three minutes remaining when the Spartans took the lead, their first advantage since early in the opening quarter.
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".
