I had this question in a language arts meeting with my teacher but I forgot the answer. I know that she talked about it being a trick question though so I'm not sure.

  1. Since the reference is to the team as a whole, yes, "its" is correct.

    If you were referring to an action in which the team members acted separately, then you'd use "their."
