Bay Area teen part of lawsuit to resume California's indoor youth sports opens up after big win

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- She didn't know what a plaintiff was but California high school student, Stella Buch, laced up her shoes and hit the court.

Not the volleyball or basketball court but the legal type of court. She did it with the help of her parents and others.

Her goal - to play high school sports.

"All I want is to put on the jersey for my school and be part of the team," said Stella Buch, a freshman volleyball player at The Menlo School.

She was one of several plaintiffs who sued the state and won.

The state is ironing out guidelines to allow indoor high school sports to resume but it won't be the way it was.
