Safety Mitigation Webinar Tonight

At Stevenson, we have worked closely with our local health department to ensure we are following the latest public health guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education and will continue to be responsive and update our safety policies to fall in line with state guidance as it evolves.

As a reminder, we would like to invite the entire Stevenson community to a webinar scheduled for 7 p.m. tonight. We will provide an update on our safety mitigations as well as address common questions and concerns.

Never Forget: Stevenson Commemorates 9/11

The Stevenson community gathered along with local first responders and military service personnel on Saturday to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

After a solemn tribute (click here to see the video recap) to those lost on that day and in the days since as America continues to fight against terrorism and for freedom, Stevenson hosted Patriot Day Family Fest, which featured live music, food and interactive activities with Students Helping Soldiers.

Students Helping Soldiers and Stevenson High School also collected donations for the Tunnel To Towers Foundation, which assists fallen and severely injured military and first responders and their families.

Boys Cross Country: The varsity team ran on the state meet course at Detweiller Park in Peoria on Saturday. Missing a few key runners, the team ran well enough to record multiple personal bests by Dylan Zimmerman, Sid Paleati, Andrew Brandt, Sean Moriarty and Colin Livesay. They finished in the first five spots for Stevenson. The Patriots travel to Lake Forest tomorrow to face the host Scouts and the Zee-Bees from Zion Benton.

Girls Golf: A team score of 309 was good enough for third place in the Waukegan Invitational at Bonnie Brook Golf Course. Allyson Duan shot a 75, followed by Megan Lee with a 77. Allie Santos was close behind with a 79, followed by Rylie Pryor with an 80 and Emily Duan with an 81.

Boys Golf: The boys took to the links at the Deerfield Invitational at Twin Orchard on Saturday and took fourth place out of 10 teams. Senior Alex (AJ) Goldberg led the Patriots with a 2-over-72 and captured fourth place as an individual.

Football: Lake Forest, known for its aggressive style on offense, especially on fourth downs, converted two fourth downs on the opening drive, including a fake punt, en route to a 42-17 home victory over Stevenson. It was a well-balanced effort for both teams until the fourth quarter, when Lake Forest scored two touchdowns on late drives. Click here for coverage in the Daily Herald.
