New rules govern what girls are allowed to wear to formal dances and prohibit "unsuitable dance moves."
Stevenson High School students attending school dances will be held to stricter standards when it comes to attire and physical activity at the events, under new rules adopted for 2012-13. Girls attending formal dances — Homecoming, Winter Formal and Prom — must adhere to rules that restrict the shortness, tightness and cuts of their dresses. Specifically, the dress code states: Stevenson High School spokesman Jim Conrey said in the past, dance attire was regulated by the school’s general dress code. “This takes it to a deeper level,” he said. The new guidelines, he said, were developed last spring by the Stevenson Leadership Advisory Council. Composed of presidents of more than 40 student clubs, the group meets monthly with Stevenson’s …

The Wildcats ended a six-game losing streak with a 31-14 romp.
It was throw out the records night in Buffalo Grove. Both visiting Wheeling and home-standing Buffalo Grove rode into Friday night's Homecoming game nursing six-game losing streaks. So something, outside of tie, had to give. Wheeling (2-6) used the hard running of senior Ed Scanlon to add to Buffalo Grove's losing steak. The Wildcats pulled away from a 12-7 halftime lead to post a 31-14 road win over the Bison. No team wants a seven-game losing, streak but there was some promising news coming from the Buffalo Grove passing attack. Especially that Richard Zirngibl to Ryan Schumi connection. Those two players hooked up on 10 passes on this night. "Wheeling did a nice job of taking away our running game,'' BG football coach Jim Farrell said…

Even after rehearsals, seniors Anthony DeSalvo and Nique Gray said they never expected to win.
When Anthony DeSalvo left a bouquet of balloons on Nique Gray’s doorstep to ask her to Homecoming, he had no idea they’d be going to the dance not just as dates — but as king and queen. At its coronation ceremony Friday afternoon, Buffalo Grove High School crowned DeSalvo and Gray as its Homecoming royalty. Although the two had practiced the routine with the rest of the contenders, and worked through a full dress rehearsal that afternoon, seniors DeSalvo and Gray didn’t think they’d really be crowned. “I didn't expect to win at all,” said DeSalvo, 17, of Arlington Heights. “In the practice round, you don't even think about having to go up there. You don't really think you’re going to have to do it. And then when they call your name, it’s …

The Patriots topped rival Libertyville 13-0.
It was a good time for the Stevenson defense to play its best game of the year. With rival Libertyville in Lincolnshire for Homecoming, in front of a packed crowd the Patriots’ defense picked up the shutout to give the hosts a 13-0 North Suburban Lake win Friday night. Senior running back Kevin Foley was the Patriots’ workhorse, carrying the ball 31 times for 130 yards and the game’s only touchdown. Foley rushed the ball 10 times on Stevenson’s opening drive and scored from three yards out on a run off the right tackle. Foley is still getting used to the big number of carries. “I was actually injured for the first game and I just started doing it recently,” Foley said. “I’m loving it. It’s just fun. You get banged up a little, but that’s …
The school's coronation ceremony Friday featured a soda-candy explosion to announce Gina Li and Michael Hu as its king and queen.
Gina Li didn’t realize she had been elected Homecoming queen until she looked down and noticed the soda all over her feet. Stevenson High School announced Li and Michael Hu as its Homecoming royalty Friday afternoon with a small-scale chemical reaction at its pep rally, held in its packed, green- and gold-lit Sports Center. The choir, color guard, cheerleading and poms groups all performed at the celebration, which was followed by the school’s Rally in the Ally and its victorious shutout football game. “The kids like to be creative to illustrate who is the winner, instead of just saying, ‘Michael and Gina,’ and it being kind of boring,” explained Dave Eddy, a science teacher and student activities coordinator, about the soda geyser …

Officers will be on special patrols during Buffalo Grove and Stevenson high school's Homecoming weekends.
Buffalo Grove police are stepping up patrols beginning this weekend in an effort to keep teens safe during Homecoming celebrations. Additional officers will be assigned to target underage drinking parties that students might plan following Stevenson High School’s dance Saturday night. The effort will be repeated Oct. 15 in conjunction with Buffalo Grove High School’s Homecoming dance. “It’s focusing on the two Homecoming events because sometimes there are issues with parties after the dances,” Deputy Chief Steve Husak said. In the past, officers have been advised to keep an eye out for Homecoming-related infractions, but this is the first time the department has planned a special enforcement. “We’re going to have a couple of officers who …

More than 500 people danced into the record books at the school's second annual Spirit Fest. The event not only boosted school spirit for homecoming week, it raised money for a good cause.
Five hundred twenty-five human robots danced into the Guinness Book of World Records Sunday at the second annual Stevenson High School Spirit Fest. After a quick dance lesson, students, parents and others from the community lined up along the the football field yardage and shifted into quick, in sync, robotic moves to the song "Mr. Roboto" by Styx. The previous record was set by 429 dancers in London. Spirit Fest organizers well documented the event with video, pictures and precise number counting to submit to Guinness World Records for certification. "It was fun," said Stevenson freshman Ethan Rosuck. "To see everyone doing the exact same thing on a big football field — it was awesome!" National Honor Society President Kayla Reinherz said…
