The Mid-Valley has experienced tremendous success in girls basketball at the state level in recent years, and with the winter season under way, teams hope to continue that trend. In the past three seasons, South Salem, Dayton, Western Mennonite, Silverton, Kennedy and Blanchet all have won state championships in girls basketball, with South Salem and Dayton winning multiple titles.
Another entertaining season is shaping up in Mid-Valley boys basketball. Last season Sprague and West Salem battled for supremacy in the Greater Valley Conference with the Olympians prevailing by one game. West Salem had a longer postseason run claiming fourth place in the OSAA 6A state tournament, the Titans’ highest finish in school history. Sprague returns senior forward Teagan Quitoriano, a first team all-state selection last season. West Salem senior Kyle Greeley was a second team selection.
Not long after head coach Willie Taggart left the Ducks for Florida State, Oregon’s players made an organized social media push to convince Mullens and top donor Phil Knight to give interim head coach Mario Cristobal the full-time position, and it worked. With Oregon removing the “interim” tag from Cristobal, the powers in the athletic department have made a powerful statement — the players’ voice matters.
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".
