WILTON, Conn. The Wilton High School Challenge team will be battling Fairfield Ludlowe High School in the state finals of the MSG Varsity Challenge quiz show.
Tune in to Cablevision channel 14, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to watch the five students compete in a challenge of history, current events, math, science, arts and literature in front of a live audience. The show will be hosted by American Idol semi-finalist Jared Cotto.
Led by senior captain Simon Brewer, the team consists of fellow seniors William Jankowski and Mohsin Jawed, freshman Molly Hoch and junior Jake Jankowski. It hopes to win against Ludlowe so it can move on to the regional challenges.
