Allderdice defeated Westinghouse, 66-46, at the Petersen Events Center for a fifth consecutive City League boys title, Feb. 17. That accomplishment hasn’t been done since Westinghouse ran off a title run spanning 1950-1954. It was the third time this season that the Dragons (22-2) had defeated the Bulldogs (16-6). Obviously, this time around, the Bulldogs were hoping the third time would be a charm for them, in front of hundreds of spectators on the court where the college men usually play.
Allderdice (15-9) scored only 16 points in the first half and trailed by three. But the Lady Dragons came on strong in the second half and slipped past Westinghouse (13-7), 49-42, to win the City League championship Saturday, Feb. 17, at the Petersen Events Center. “We shot poorly and we are going to work on shooting, shooting and shooting,” Allderdice Coach Ellen Guillard said. “I’m happy that we won and it’s only my second year.
This past Saturday, Feb. 3, despite the very cold and overcast Pittsburgh weather outside, within the walls of the Chartiers Country Club in Robinson Township, there was vibrant sunshine everywhere. John Giammarco, Director of the Pittsburgh Basketball Club Hall of Fame sports banquet, said the Hall of Fame was established to carry on the memories of athletes and other sports notables, male and female, who have brought lasting fame and recognition through their athletic achievements.
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".
