Valdosta - Valdosta got its "Winnersville" nickname because of great football teams.  But this weekend the city will host some of the country's best teams in a very different sport.

Hundreds of students from around the country will travel to Valdosta to play in an ultimate frisbee tournament hosted by VSU.

The teams come from as far away as Notre Dame and the University of Miami.

The Blazers hope to win on home turf and bring the school another championship. 

"Anyone can come out and watch. You can cheer on the Blazers team as they to win the first annual 'Heat of the Huck.' This is the first time for a college ultimate tournament in Valdosta and we expect to do it every year," says Tournament Organizer Tate Weiger.

Ultimate Frisbee is becoming more popular in Valdosta with college and alumni teams.

The tournament will start Saturday morning at 9:00 at Freedom Park and continue through Sunday.
