It was the type of close, low-scoring game that the Ridgefield High boys basketball team had a habit of winning during the regular season. So when the top-seeded Tigers ended the third quarter with a 10-4 run to take a 34-32 lead over eight-seed Norwalk in an FCIAC quarterfinal Saturday night, a familiar narrative seemed likely: Ridgefield would do enough to stay ahead, get the victory, and take the first step toward defending its conference title.
Scoring the game’s first four goals, the Ridgefield High boys hockey team ended its regular season with a 5-2 non-conference win over Notre Dame-West Haven on Friday afternoon at the Winter Garden. Ridgefield, the defending conference and Division I state champion, takes a 16-4 record into the postseason. Following a first-round bye, the second-seeded Tigers will play either third-seed Darien or sixth-seed New Canaan in the semifinals next Wednesday (Feb. 28) night at the Darien Ice House.
Led by three top-three individual finishes, the Ridgefield High wrestling team placed seventh at the Class LL state championship on Saturday at Trumbull High School. The Tigers had 93.5 points to edge eighth-place Newtown (91 points). FCIAC champion Danbury finished first with 274 points, followed by Fairfield Warde (200 points). Trumbull and Southington tied for third place with 175 points each.
On an otherwise tragic Valentine's Day (Parkland school shooting), this story about two HIV+ folks who met through POZ personals and then had a beautiful HIV- baby boy was a delight to work on. Thanks, Claire and Aaron!
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".
