Someone familiar and someone new has the Cicero-North Syracuse girls basketball team carrying grand expectations once more. Senior Amani Free and freshman Jessica Cook teamed up to do most of the damage for the Northstars as it pushed past defending Section III Class AA champion West Genesee 58-53 in Friday night’s Salt City Athletic Conference Metro division opener. Free, the Quinnipiac University-bound guard, finished with a career-best total of 32 points.
Though it is still quite early, with the way they have dispatched opponents the Bishop Ludden and Westhill girls basketball teams are making sure that their Dec. 22 showdown turns into one of the season’s most anticipated games. Both started last week with more lopsided wins as Westhill rudely welcomed 3-0 Cazenovia with an early-game scoring outburst by Mackenzie Martin that fueled a 61-29 rout of the Lakers. Of Martin’s 18 points, 13 of them came in the first eight-plus minutes.
In the first full week of December, the Solvay bowling teams got underway, using a seven-point system in their matches, all of which are held at Strike-N-Spare Lanes in Mattydale. The opener last Monday saw the girls Bearcats defeat Homer 5-2, led by Jessica Birdslow, whose 234 game led to a 576 series. Also for Solvay, Anastasia LaFlair had a 400 series, with Rebecca Ducey earning a 359 series and Caitlin McCann getting a 345 series. Sam Button paced the Trojans with a three-game total of 407.
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".
