A travel guide on Valdosta would not be complete without mentioning its rich sporting tradition. As with most south Georgia towns, football is king in Valdosta, and rightfully so. Collectively, Valdosta's three high schools have won 32 state championships and six national ones. The rivalry between Valdosta and Lowndes High Schools is one of the longest in high school sports. Valdosta State University is also the winner of two Division II championships and six conference championships. Their tennis team has also won two national titles and nine conference titles, including every conference title since 2007. The baseball team has also won a national title. In fact, due to this, ESPN named Valdosta the winner of its Titletown USA competition in 2008, adding another nickname to the town already known as Winnersville.
