Steven Burekhovich, captain, Joseph Deutsch, Soly Idy, Joe Khezrie and Mendy Isseroff competed on the Cablevision TV academic game show, The Challenge.  A rigorously competetive interschool contest, The Challenge, is a test of the depth and breadth of knowledge, ranging from pop culture to complex mathematical problems, as well as quick buzzer-finger reflexes.  After defeating the best and the brightest of other Brooklyn schools and winning the vaunted Brooklyn Championship, bringing home $2,500 and a trophy, the Flatbush Challenge team made it all the way to the Tri-State regionals. Congratulations to the Challenge team and to Rachail Kurtz, the Challenge coach/advisor.
