A change did them good.
On Friday, the Pecos Panthers wrestling team won its first district championship upon being moved to District 1/3-4A in the offseason.
The Panthers captured five individual titles, with two second places and three third places at the district tournament held at their own Sanchez Gym.
Pecos, coached by Mel Rael, garnered 158 team points to hold off Shiprock (152) for first place. Wingate (94), Foothill (82), Tierra Encantada (80) and Newcomb (53) trailed those two.
