The Pecos Panthers are 2016 Class 3A state track and field champions.
And it wasn’t that close.
Pecos amassed 64 team points, besting second-place Estancia (47). Dexter, Capitan, Santa Rosa and Native American Community Academy rounded out the top six.
The Panthers racked up big points in their bread and butter — distance running events — but added several strong finishes elsewhere.
Pecos senior Ryan Sandoval won the 800-meter run in 1:59.62; junior Isaac C de Baca was fifth to also earn points.
