Stevenson has been a starter in the midfield from the minute she put on a Wesleyan uniform, playing and starting each game during the team's 8-6-1 campaign in 2009. She contributed two assists to the offense while also supporting a defense that established a school record for shutouts in a season with seven. The team's 0.98 goals-against average in 2009 is the second-lowest in program history, bettered only by the 1994 squad that posted the best record in school history (12-4-1) with a 0.85 goals-against average. In addition to her NESCAC honor, Stevenson made the fourth team of the NSCAA New England Division III all-region squad.
Over her four years, Stevenson played in 54 of a possible 57 games with 53 starts, scoring one goal along with seven assists for nine career points.
