Crysten Wood made the free throws and Kristin Jacobs earned the milestone during a memorable night at Steinert High.

Woods buried two foul shots with 4.7 seconds left to give the Spartans’ girls basketball team a 32-30 home victory over arch-rival Hamilton Tuesday night. Woods’ heroics provided the 100th career win for head coach Kristin Jacobs, a former soccer and basketball standout for Steinert who is in the school’s athletic hall of fame.

Nicole Pappas led the Spartans with 8 points and 7 rebounds, while Alex Haley had 7 points and 8 rebounds. Wood chipped in with 7 points, and Hamilton’s Tina Fedor led all scorers with 10.

Steinert leveled its record at 8-8 with the victory.
