MONTGOMERY, Ala. ---- Junior Riley Prescott and freshman Christian Vick each captured three-set victories to close out a 5-4 win by the Huntingdon women’s tennis team over Agnes Scott on Friday, and in the process, extend the Lady Hawks’ win streak against Great South Athletic Conference opponents to 19 matches.
