The Texas Roadrunners finished off the 2022-2023 regular season in fashion winning their final six games to grab the division title from the Texas Brahmas. The Runners, who had held onto the divisional lead throughout most of the regular season went on a bit of a slide in the second half losing six of eight games before restoring power to their game and clinching the South. “It was a great feeling to see the guys rebound and grab the regular season championship which was our first goal from the start. The Brahmas had won the past six regular season division titles and we wanted to put an end to that first and foremost.” stated Runners Head Coach Mike Beavis
