LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - The Angelina Roadrunnners have been tested early and are hoping that test pays off on conference play.

After 17 games the team is 9-8 on the year. The Roadrunners have played the 3rd toughest schedule in the NJCAA.

“A lot of people can make assumptions about the record,” Head coach Nick Wade said. “we have played up to six top 25 teams. We have taken them everywhere. At Angelina it is not about how many fights but who you have fought. Hopefully it is preparing us for a March run.”

The team will host Trinity Valley on Saturday in what is their last game against a North Zone team. So far, they are 4-2 in conference play.

“We felt we left one of those on the table,” Wade said. “Trinity Valley is a very good ball team. Our guys know as long as we do what we are supposed to do that we will have an opportunity to be successful.”

Tip off is 4 pm. The game is proceeded by the AC women hosting Bossier Parish at 2 p.m.
