VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The school with the winningest football program in history was, as of Tuesday, hoping to start a winning tradition in another sport.

Valdosta High School announced girls' volleyball as an official sport for the 2015-2016 school year.

The school gave interested students a chance to meet with the coaches at a ceremony Tuesday afternoon. VHS had been trying to get a volleyball program going for about 10 years, but had never had enough interest from the students.

The coaches said Tuesday they were ready to get started. "About three years ago, they tried but the interest just wasn't there,' said head coach Anna McCall. "[We're] very excited. Can't wait to get in the gym at Newbern. We'll practice at Newbern in the new gym there. Can't wait."

As of Tuesday, their season was set to officially begin on August 1st.

Per GHSA rules, the team will have to play the first two years at the JV level before being eligible to compete in varsity competitions.
