CROOKSVILLE - With the exception of a 31-point effort in a loss to Philo, scoring hasn't been a problem for Crooksville's girls basketball team in the season's early stages. It's the other end of the floor that has Ceramics coach Curt Miller concerned. "We have to find a way to play defense," said Miller, now the second-longest tenured coach in the Muskingum Valley League. "Our offenses are working and we're scoring a good amount of points for us. We have to find a way to slow people down."
PHILO - Starting the season midway through December isn't exactly the way Greg Woodard planned it, but John Glenn's veteran head coach is adjusting the best he can. The Muskies shook off a slow start by implementing a swarming defense that never let host Philo get comfortable, pulling away in the second half for a 62-38 season-opening win on Tuesday night at The Power Plant.
Raiders off to promising start despite youthful makeupMcCONNELSVILLE - Morgan lost some serious firepower from last year's team, leaving coach Adam Copeland in a situation rather unfamiliar. A year ago, he lost eight years of experience when Marcus Mayle and Mason Edgell graduated. But he still had some key players, like Dre Norman, Jordan Work and Jy Mayle, returning. This year the Raiders don't have that luxury.
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".
