Many a story will be told about the biggest Lincoln-Way East football victory in five years. Senior running back Ryan Scianna can tell a few. He was a veritable storyteller following Saturday's 24-14 victory over Maine South that earned the Griffins their first trip to the Class 8A state finals since 2012. Lincoln-Way East (13-0) will play Loyola (12-1) at 7 p.m. Saturday at Northern Illinois in DeKalb. The Ramblers were a 17-10 winner over Edwardsville in the other semifinal.
To hear senior outside hitter Savannah Thompson tell it, every day at practice with Marist coach Jordan Vidovic was like the first day of preseason. "You know, some days people come into work and they just don't feel like doing it," Thompson said. "They tell you do this or do that while they just walk around. "That was never the case with coach Vidovic. He was always there being involved with the drills and making sure every day was a chance to help us get better.
In them she was at Redbird Arena, competing in the state championship match. "It usually went that we'd get there and I never knew who won," she said. "We'd get to the final few points and it was a super close game, and then I'd wake up. It was pretty crazy." Dreams became reality on the final night when Marist beat Minooka 22-25, 25-22, 25-15 to earn the program's first Class 4A state title. Guess who had kills on two of the final three points, including the last one?
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".
