Woody rallied to beat Anastasia Koltun of Russia 0-3, 4-3, 5-3 in the quarterfinals before sweeping Eglys Siviva of Venezuela 2-1, 5-1 in the semifinals.

It has been a banner season for the 18-year-old Woody, who was named Outstanding Wrestler at Junior Nationals this year. Woody has won three straight titles at Junior Nationals. She also won the 2006 U.S. Girls Wrestling Association Folkstyle High School Nationals. She placed seventh at the U.S. Nationals on the Senior level in 2006.

Woody also was a first-team selection to the 2006 TheMat.com/ASICS Girls High School All-American Wrestling Team.
