NEW ORLEANS – A matchup between two of the top volleyball programs in the metro New Orleans area, Archbishop Hannan and Ben Franklin, will be live streamed by Crescent City Sports Monday evening.

Coverage from the Ben Franklin campus will begin just prior to the 5:30 p.m. first serve at

With barely a week remaining in the regular season, the Hawks (25-6) are No. 1 in the unofficial LHSAA Division III power rankings, while the homestanding Falcons (22-4 as of Thursday) sit third in Division II.

Hannan will take a 17-match winning streak into Monday, while Ben Franklin took a 12-match winning streak into its Thursday home match against John Curtis Christian. The Falcons also have a Saturday match with Hahnville scheduled.

Last year in Covington, Ben Franklin defeated Hannan in straight sets.

Hannan eventually went on to take the Division III title last November at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, while Ben Franklin was eliminated in the Division II quarterfinals. That was a reversal from 2019, when the Falcons reached the Division II finals and the Hawks were knocked out in the round of 8.

The Crescent City Sports team is in its 11th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced more than 340 live streams since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2021-22. CCS will also produce additional events that will both be televised by Cox Communications and streamed on the site.
