The perennial state champion St. Paul volleyball team opened up its season with a pair of resounding victories at home, besting Perrydale 3-0 on March 2 before a 3-0 win over Willamette Valley Christian on March 4. The Buckaroos played on the road at Crosshill Christian on Tuesday after The Graphic went to press, and they look ahead to a home matchup with state powerhouse Powder Valley on Friday in a non-league contest.
