“This was the first major competition for the year, and so now we are going to go back and fix our mistakes and get our team aligned,” said Coach Nate Ybarra. “For the boys, we have a few starters that didn’t make the first competition. I’m really looking forward to being competitive this year and the end goal is to bring home some state placers for Paso Robles.”
