Five friends compete in a dart-throwing contest. Each one has two darts to throw at the same circular target, and each individual's score is the sum of the scores in the target regions that are hit. The scores for the target regions are the whole numbers 1 through 10. Each throw hits the target in a region with a different value. The scores are: Alice 16 points, Ben 4 points, Cindy 7 points, Dave 11 points, and Ellen 17 points. Who hits the region worth 6 points?
