Buffalo freshman Kari Zumach goes for a block in the season’s opening match Aug. 28 at Delano. The Bison lost the match 3-0 to the Tigers, who are the defending Section 2-3A champions and Class 3A state runner-up in 2013-14. Delano made history last season as the smallest Class 3A school to advance to the state tournament. They made it all the way to the championship match before losing in five sets to Eagan.
