Steph Wood was the first player signed to the Sunshine Coast Lightning and she’s been an integral member of the team ever since. Smart and creative in attack, Wood provides leadership and experience in the goal circle. One of Wood’s trademarks is her ability to shoot with accuracy from long range. Predominantly lining up at Goal Attack, the 29-year-old also occasionally features at Wing Attack. Reward for effort after a stellar season in 2018 saw her named joint winner of the Lightning Player of the Year Award.
Wood is a current representative in the Diamonds team that played in the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019, having first being named in the Australian side in 2015 – the same year she made her national league debut for NSW Swifts.
