For the second time in 10 days, the Conard and Hall/Southington hockey teams met on their shared home ice of Veteran’s Memorial Rink. But the game on Tuesday, while it had higher stakes, had less drama than the last meeting between these two. Conard came out on top 2-1 behind two goals from junior Bryant Caron to move on to a Division III quarterfinal game on Friday. “Everything was muted today and I think everybody wanted to have the game we had today,” Conard coach Chris Tornaquindici said.
No movement in the rankings this week. Fairfield Prep suffered its second loss of the season, to another out-of-state team. This time the Jesuits fell to Malden Catholic (Mass.) on Sunday, but with victories over fellow top-10 teams Ridgefield and Notre Dame-West Haven, they remain on top of the rankings and undefeated in state. Several teams had games postponed because of weather Saturday, while a couple of teams, Farmington Valley and NFI, avoided bad losses by escaping with a tie. 1.
For the Southington gymnastics team, a three-peat in Class L is a possibility. "I'd like to do that," coach Kaitlyn O'Donnell said with a laugh. "We've won the last two years, but I think with hard work we can definitely do that again." Southington is led by an experienced group of gymnasts. Four athletes return from the top five who helped Southington win its second straight Class L title. Kayla Nati, a four-time All-State gymnast, graduated in June.
Not that many people follow me, but if anyone is interested, I made a new account for work since I never tweet from here. Give it a follow at @SeanBeginHC. Gonna be tweeting from the high school hockey finals today and posting from there more often than here going forward.
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".
