Record Breaking Roadrunners

Grand Junction, are two words which is the name of the prime destination for Angelina College's baseball program.

The Roadrunners seem to be destined for Grand Junction, Colorado, the sight of the Junior College World Series.

A.C. just wrapped up their best regular season ever with 42 wins and a co-conference championship, the first since 1989.

The 'Runners will travel to Edinburg, Texas (UT-Pan American) for the Region XIV Conference Tournament on Wednesday. The winner of that tournament will receive a bid to Junior College World Series.

If the 'Runners win it all or not, A.C. has already put up several numbers which have broken or are near school records.

Here is a breakdown of the current school records set and which records will soon be shattered.
