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.
