At the end of each program, the points are totaled; and, at season's end, the three highest scoring teams return for the championship match. Seniors Katherine Gilbert, Bijan Pakdel and Sterling Shriber will represent Firestone. Other team members include Arian Daneshvar, Rowan Matney and Alex Pica.
