Hopefully you can read the attached file.  Here are my results:
$ python sorttest.py
John 1:[5.324422796752101, 6.9189729420918029, 6.771758421810592]
John 2:[3.4790142322557749, 3.4373198269612502, 3.392254322825945]
Kent:[29.745739472474856, 42.376246143015386, 38.031272689685423]

(each time represents 100,000 reps)
