At Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club, Hickman opened up his nine shot lead with a fantastic 61-64-65 start to the 72-hole tournament.
Hickman, who plays at East Tennessee State, is at 20-under throughout the first three rounds and holds that advantage over Riley Davenport of UNC Charlotte. Davenport has been stellar, too, carding rounds of 65-65-67.
Christopher Crawford is nine back after rounds of 66-60-64 and is in a small group of players in contention entering Sunday's final round, considering the spectacular play of Hickman.
