Amy Furusho, a second-year student-athlete at Beat the Streets, is more than just a wrestler. The seventeen-year-old is a senior at The Bronx High School of Science, a specialized school often considered the premier science magnet in the United States. Admission is based on performance on an entry exam, and includes a culturally and economically diverse range of students. Although math and science are its focus, Bronx Science also emphasizes the humanities and social sciences, and offers a wide variety of classes in multiple areas. Amy, who will graduate in June, likes physics and introduction to organic chemistry the most. “I do pretty well,” she says—her modesty masking the fact that she gets almost all A’s at the prestigious high school.

The Super 32 Challenge, known by many as the most competitive pre-season amateur wrestling tournament in the United States, is happy to announce its $1,875 donation made to Beat the Streets earlier this week.

Money raised from the auctions of tournament entries was divided between Beat the Streets and three other very worthy wrestling-related causes.

Beat the Streets is extremely grateful for the donation from the Super 32, which will help us to further our mission of bringing opportunities to New York City’s youth on and off the mat.
