FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long has this website existed?

In the spring of 2000, the St. Paul City Conference athletic website was created. It was the brainchild of Gerry Keenan, Harding H.S. athletic director. With webmasters Thomas Song and John Vosejpka at the controls, the site was born. In the fall of 2011, a newer, more user-friendly version of the site was created and donated by David Norrgard of UrbanPlanet Software. In the summer of 2016, the district discarded and redesigned the site. Their new site did not meet the standards of those that originally created the site, so a website that resembled the previous version of that site was launched. Once again it was user-friendly and easy to navigate!! Nearly 63,000 visited this site in its first two years, viewing over a quarter million of the pages!!

Why do two athletic websites exist for the St. Paul City Conference?

With different visions on how information should be presented, the two sites remain. The public has the option in which website they prefer to get information and scores.

Why do the Archives sections in both sites differ? It appears that one of them stops in the spring of 2016.

In the summer of 2016, when the district re-created the site, they had the ability to take from the former website its archive sections as it existed at that time. When they no longer could gain access to subsequent year's results, their's abruptly stops at that point with no explanation. Fortunately, our site continues to add results after each season, so that you have a complete version of the Archives. That section also has the middle school Archives, as well, and a complete list of those that have coached at the high school varsity level.

Occasionally, there appears on the schedule two non-St. Paul schools playing each other. Why do you have them on this site?

In football and boys hockey, our schools are members of another conference. In football, they belong to four different divisions in the Twin Cities District and in boys hockey, Highland Park is a member of the Two Rivers Conference. We want to be able to provide you with complete standings so it is necessary to post and track the scores of the other schools in those districts or conferences.

If I attended a game or match, is it possible to report a score?

Starting in the fall of 2018, we are encouraging players, parents and fans, as well as coaches, to report a score. You simply e-mail the score and it will be posted for you. For more information, go to the "Report A Score" tab.

In the Latest Scores section, I don't always see all of the scores from the previous day or just see a selected few. Why is that?

For many days, there is not enough room created in the right column for all of the scores. If you want complete results from any day, either go to the calendar and select the specific date or, using the arrow to the left of the date, scroll back as many days as you wish.

I've heard I can get scores from the past. How do I do this?

The Archives section goes back as far as 1891 and lists nearly all of the sports that have been offered, over the years, by St. Paul. Just click the link to the sport you wish to peruse and you are on your way!!

In the Archives I noticed a score missing. Why is that?

The scores from the past are constantly being researched and updated. If you have any scores that could be added to the site, or an erroneous score appears, please contact John Vosejpka at john@stpaulsports.org.
