Members of the team, named “2016 Champs!,” were Lauren Bailey, Stacy Bunce (team captain), Summer Deeb, Khris Dodson, Kathy Forrest, Kerrie Marshall, Paul McCarthy and Dastan Pakyari.

Teams consisted of at least four individuals. For teams with more than four individuals, the top four distances counted toward the team total distance.
