For years, Braintree girls’ basketball coach Kristen McDonnell and her counterpart at Cathedral, Clinton Lassiter, had tried to schedule a game between their teams, with the intent of sharpening each other for the postseason. It finally happened on Monday night, with the visiting Wamps knocking off Cathedral, 62-57, in front of a raucous Senior Night crowd.
Any matchup between a pair of defending state champions is rare. The opportunity to see those team teams square off twice in the same season is just as unlikely. But if their mid-January showdown was any indicator, defending Division 4 champ Cathedral (13-2 overall, 10-0 Catholic Central Large) and reigning D3 champion Archbishop Williams (14-1, 9-1 CCL) are guaranteed to put on another show on Friday night in Braintree. The matchup will likely determine the league champion.
Maine public schools have seen drastic declines in enrollment over the last decade as many communities around the state have lost population as a result of changes in the economy. Between 2007 and 2017, about two-thirds of schools, 392 of 592, saw a net decline in their student populations. A Maine Focus analysis determined that every county in Maine has seen a net decline in public school enrollment, led by Lincoln and Aroostook counties.
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".
