The 2010-11 edition of the Topeka RoadRunners is up and running. After an early Monday flight to Atlanta, the team settled into their accomodations and engaged in team building activities in the evening. Early Tuesday morning, the team began the on-ice portion of camp. "The tempo has been solid", said head coach Scott Langer. "We've spent a lot of time going over details and very quickly you can see this group coming together as a team."
The team will cap off their week with a game Friday night against the Atlanta Knights, who skate in the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League, a Tier III league. The RoadRunners will return to Topeka next Tuesday in preparation for the weekend exhbition series against Amarillo, followed by the Alumni Game on Sunday September 5.
The team expects to announce it's 25-man roster on September 1.
