TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Shawnee County Commission is trying to rally community support for the Topeka RoadRunners amateur hockey team.

Commissioners voted in July to adopt a lease agreement to keep the team through at least the end of the 2017-18 season. After attending the team’s home opener this month, commission chairman Kevin Cook lamented that many of the seats were empty.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1OC0NSD ) reports that average attendance at the team’s first four games this season was down about 40 percent compared to last season’s average.

Cook is encouraging residents who haven’t attended a game to check it out and is sharing his concerns over the team’s attendance with fans who urged the commission to keep the RoadRunners in Topeka.
