The Butler women's cross country team is up six spots in this week's national poll, which was released on Thursday.
The Hill-n-Dale poll, which also serves as the NJCAA national rankings, has Butler ranked 14th. Central Arizona received eight first-place votes and sits atop the poll for the second straight week. Iowa Central, which had been the nation's top-ranked team earlier this season, remains at No. 2 and received the other two first-place votes.
Hutchinson is the highest ranked Kansas team at No. 9 this week, up two spots from last week. Johnson County is ranked 12th, dropping four spots from a week ago. Butler is ranked ahead of fellow conference members Dodge City (15th) and Allen County (19th).
Butler's women are coming off a meet at Fort Hays State in which they finished 12th overall as a team, but were second among two-year colleges behind Hutchinson. The Grizzlies will finish the regular season with a home meet on Friday at 3 p.m. at Wartick Ranch, which is located approximately five miles south of the El Dorado campus on 60th Street.
