Crescent City Sports to live stream District 9-5A track and field Thursday
NEW ORLEANS – Crescent City Sports’ live streaming coverage of high school sports heads to the track for the first time ever Thursday with coverage of the District 9-5A track and field championship from Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans.
Live coverage will begin just prior to 6 p.m., when the bulk of running events will begin, and continue through the crowning of team champions in the district. CCS’ Lenny Vangilder will be joined by Howie Inman on the broadcast.
Archbishop Rummel, Brother Martin, John Curtis Christian, Holy Cross, Jesuit, Edna Karr and St. Augustine make up the boys field, while Curtis and Karr also field teams in the girls’ meet that will also include Archbishop Chapelle, Mount Carmel and St. Mary’s Dominican.
The meet is typically one of the most competitive on the area calendar. Last season, Brother Martin finished with 141 points to edge out Jesuit (126) and John Curtis (123) for the boys’ team title, while Mount Carmel outpointed Dominican 94-91 for the girls’ crown.
The Crusaders and Cubs are the two-time defending Catholic League champions after also winning the 2021 titles.
The Crescent City Sports team is in its 12th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced more than 400 live streams since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2022-23.
