Pederson fired an 86 and Boelter's 88 was a personal best. It was one for personal best rounds for Pequot players.
"It was a great day for the Patriots," Pequot head coach Savannah Smith said. "We had many personal bests, which is encouraging since this is our first meet of the season. If we can continue to build off of this momentum, the next month and a half are going to be exciting for everyone.
"We shot our personal best team score (365) since I have been coaching and all four scores were under 100. These are huge improvements compared to last season and I am so proud of all their hard work."
