(The X's denote "intentionally left blank" by that voter
to denote the fact he wishes to express ignorance/no opinion about Cal and
wants to leave the decision about his score to other, more knowledgeable
voters.)

Procedure: compute Amy's, Bob's, and Cal's sums,
then compute their averages 441/9=49, 540/9=60, and 372/6=62.
Because Cal has the highest average, he wins.
