East Mississippi Community College has moved back up to fifth place in the new National Junior College Athletic Association poll, released Monday.


EMCC (2-1) was fifth in the poll two weeks ago before falling a spot to sixth. The Lions were in the top spot to begin the season before their loss at Hinds.


Hutchinson (Kansas) kept the top spot, receiving 10 first-place votes. Butler (Kansas) was a close second with the other six first-place votes.



Northwest Mississippi and Mississippi Gulf Coast also finished ahead of EMCC.


Among the rest of the top 20, Copiah-Lincoln is eighth, Jones is 13th and Hinds is 19th.


EMCC travels to face Mississippi Delta (0-3) on Thursday.
