More movement this week for the Hutchinson Community College football team, this time in an upward director.

Following Saturday’s 49-12 Jayhawk Conference victory at Highland, the Blue Dragons move up one spot to No. 12 in this week’s NJCAA Football Poll.

The Blue Dragons (4-1 overall) won its third-straight game by racking up nearly 500 yards against the Scotties. The victory moved the Blue Dragons into a first-place tie with Butler.

That tie will be broken again this weekend as now-No. 2 Butler entertains No. 19 Garden City, while Hutchinson goes out of conference to play host to Air Force Prep at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Gowans Stadium.

The latest ranking marks the 34th-consecutive poll and the 43rd time in the last 45 polls that the Blue Dragons have appeared in, which dates back to 2008.

For the second-straight week, Iowa Western maintained the No. 1 spot. Butler moved past Arizona Western into No. 2. Garden City makes its second appearance in the poll at No. 19.
