Important Reminder For Fans At Stevenson EventsStudent Section Expectations
Student spectators are expected to cheer positively for the Stevenson Patriots. We ask that everyone demonstrate an attitude of good sportsmanship no matter what feelings of loyalty they may have toward one team or the other. Obscene cheers, the throwing of objects, and verbal or physical indignities directed toward athletes, coaches, or officials have no place in high school athletics. Anyone not displaying appropriate conduct at an athletic event will be asked to leave the event. 
Athletic ResultsBoys Soccer: Stevenson moved to 10-0-1 on the season after coming from behind to defeat conference rival Mundelein, 2-1. Mundelein started the game aggressively and forced a lot of errors from Stevenson and scored the first goal 20-minutes into the first half. The Patriots started matching the intensity of Mundelein and had a few chances to score to level the game, but the game remained 1-0 at the half. In the 50th minute, Stevenson won a ball with a counter press and Rohan Gopalam slipped the ball to Ben Isthisone, whose deflected shot ended up in the back of the goal to tie the score 1-1. In the 63rd minute, Steven Nyc tracked a ball and passed it to Daniel Sokolovsky on a counter attack, and Sokolovsky then found Chris Konieczny (pictured above) at the top of the box.
