Blue Springs made back-to-back trips to the state championship game but had to settle for back-to-back runner-up finishes. Christian Brothers College High School beat Blue Springs 31-14 in the Missouri Class 6 football title game on Saturday at Plaster Stadium in Springfield on the campus of Missouri State University. Junior running back Bryan Bradford led a normally pass heavy CBC offense with 126 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 29 carries.
Preston Carson’s 64-yard dash for a touchdown triggered the rinse cycle.A stink of playoff defeat stayed with the Ozark Tigers for a year leading into Friday’s district playoff game with Glendale. Ozark’s 55-34 win washed away the stench of Glendale’s 85-44 hammering of Ozark in the 2016 playoffs.“We really wanted to come back and play here again and try to wipe that from our memories,” Ozark coach Chad Depee said after Friday night‘s win at Lowe Stadium in Springfield.
The final ground-out triggered a taste of sour déjà vu. For a second season in a row, Blue Springs South finished as runner-up in the Missouri high school softball state tournament. Marquette defeated the Jaguars 2-0 and won the Class 4 state title Saturday at Killian Stadium in Springfield. Memories of a 4-3 loss to Troy Buchanan in the 2016 state title game stuck with Blue Springs South catcher Haley Woolf for a full calendar year.
@kdrenon@HasseyKhan I spent a month trying to get Aaron Sachs to return my calls. Finally, I saw him at a baseball game and asked what was up. He said he didn’t understand my phone number or how to dial it. I didn’t believe him until he pulled out his iPhone and showed me... https://t.co/U5Ez9CKnbr

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".
