Team members Clayton Garner, Mark Whittaker, Captain Graham Bacher, Isabelle Canaan and alternate Francesca Garofalo go up against a team from Wilton High School on April 24 at 6:30 p.m. on Cablevision iO Channel 14.
MSG Varsity Challenge is hosted by former "American Idol" competitor Jared Cotter, who quizzes teams on history, current events, math, science and arts and literature in front of a live studio audience.
The intensity is rising as we enter the regional semifinals of 'The Challenge,' said Theresa Chillianis, MSG Varsitys general manager. We couldnt be happier with the level of competition displayed in the matches, not to mention the overwhelming support the teams have received from their schools and communities.
Participating schools advance through a series of elimination rounds, with one school in each region being crowned champion and winning $2,500. Winning teams from each region go on to The Challenge championship, where they square off in a Tri-State Showdown.
The school named tri-state champions receives $10,000. Each student participating in the final Challenge championship game gets $500.
