Valdosta - Two South Georgia schools are battling for blood.

Valdosta and Lowndes High Schools are competing to see who can collect the most blood for the American Red Cross. So far, Lowndes High has 15 pints and Valdosta High has 10.

Red Cross workers say this year's turnout has been lower than in the past. "We've had this blood drive for three years now, and this year has been the slowest so far," said Sonia Davis.

Last year, the drive collected 155 pints of blood. Red Cross officials hope to collect at least 100 this year.

The drive will end Saturday afternoon.
