When cross-country redshirt sophomore Thomas George first arrived in America from England two years ago, some things threw him off. He wasn’t used to cars being on the right side of the road, so whenever he crossed, he would be looking in the wrong direction. Whenever he tried to order a glass of water, his English accent when pronouncing “water” made it hard for people to understand. But his success on the course this season hasn’t differed from his success in England.
Missouri cross-country closed out its regular season this weekend with the Bradley Classic in Peoria, Illinois, on Friday and the Pre-National Invitational in Louisville, Kentucky, on Saturday. The focus was on the Pre-National Invitational, where many of Missouri’s top runners competed. The women’s team finished 24th while the men’s side finished 27th.
On the bus ride home from the NCAA Cross Country Championship last season, coach Marc Burns took then-junior Jamie Kempfer aside. “I told her, ‘Look, you just did something that was really special today,’” he said. “‘You’re an All-American. But you’re gonna get overshadowed. I want you to know how proud I am of you.’”Burns was referring to then-junior Karissa Schweizer’s unexpected NCAA Championship win that same day. But Kempfer simply said, “It’s OK; I’m fine.
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".
