SOUTH KINGSTOWN — The streak is into a third season.Not that the Prout girls tennis team is paying much attention.The Crusaders started their 2017 campaign with a victory over Cranston West, topped South County rival Narragansett Friday afternoon and beat Coventry Monday. The two-time reigning Division II champions still haven’t lost since the 2015 season opener – a stretch of 35 matches – but they’re working to keep that knowledge far away from the court.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN — Renewing the challenge of playing the state’s best in Division I after a winless campaign last year, the South Kingstown girls tennis team will take any improvement it can find.The Rebels didn’t have to look too hard in their first matches of the season.After a 4-3 loss to Lincoln School in the season opener, the Rebels played Westerly – a perennial contender the last few years and the No. 3 seed in the playoffs last year – to the same score Thursday.
NORTH KINGSTOWN — A quirky schedule had the North Kingstown field hockey team opening the season Sept. 1 then going 10 days without a game, making Monday’s matchup with La Salle feel like another season opener.For a team that’s almost starting over, it was both fitting and helpful.“Ten days. We had a scrimmage scheduled but then it rained that day,” head coach Julie Maguire said. “So we’ve been doing a lot of practice, but that’s all right because we’re somewhat young.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
