Connor Norton was a marked man this season. The Atwater High senior couldn’t go anywhere in the pool without drawing one or two defenders his way. Even with all the extra attention Norton was still one of the top scoring threats in the Central California Conference, leading the Falcons to the playoffs. Norton was named the CCC Most Valuable Player by the conference coaches. “Teams had to prepare for Connor on a game-by-game basis,” said Atwater coach David Svendsen.
For Mikela Labno, it’s going to be tough to top her freshman season at Hilmar High. How do you improve on a year in which you’re part of a volleyball team that goes undefeated on its way to a Trans-Valley League championship and then wins the school’s first volleyball section championship? “This team was just really special,” Labno said. “I’ll always remember how positive everyone was and just how much fun we had together. This team just got along so well.
Makenzie Webber described her excitement level as through the roof after signing her national letter of intent to accept a volleyball scholarship to Cal State Monterey Bay on Tuesday. The El Capitan High senior volleyball star made her college choice official during a short ceremony in the gym in front of her teammates, friends, teachers and family. “It’s official. They can’t take it back now,” joked Webber.
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".
