To whoever added the results box (Jasp, I think it was?): Thank You! Out of curiosity, where did you find the information to fill it with? I couldn't find a lot with the Wayback Machine. I'm refraining from adding other school pages until I can actually add results to them. Any leads would be greatly appreciated! RiverWalker88 (talk) 05:33, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

I found results using the Special:WhatLinksHere/Socorro High School page. Clicking on that link, you can see that several pages mention Socorro directly, including the Southwestern New Mexico Regional and all the New Mexico State Tournament pages from 2014-2020. While this method might not work for every placement (especially if a team didn't place in the top 3/5 listed on a page) it works very well for teams that don't commonly attend invitationals or do well at the invitationals they attend.
The Wayback Machine works very well when it comes to finding whole scoresheets to competitions because most competitions have website and post those scores. However, unless a team has its own website I find that looking for archived scores in this way is a lot less useful. WPTOS has built a very good network by working on tournament pages - a lot of scoresheets have been found and uploaded as a result, so if you think a team attended a tournament, go to its wiki page! You might find the information you need there! If you have any questions, leave a message on my talk page or message me on Discord. Hope this helped! --jaspattack 🧬 (talk) 13:09, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
Okay, yeah that makes sense. Thanks, that does help! RiverWalker88 (talk) 13:53, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
