Feb. 13, 2013
DURHAM, N.H. - NC State freshman gymnast Michaela Woodford has been named the East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) Rookie of the Week, the conference office announced on Wednesday.
The Gainesville, Fla., native excelled in the quad meet at Maryland, recording a 9.7 or better in three events. Woodford finished fourth on beam with a 9.7 and fourth in the all-around with a 38.850. She notched her highest score of the evening on floor with a 9.775, tallied a 9.725 on vault and a 9.650 on bars.
Woodford has competed as an all-arounder in every meet this season for the Wolfpack, joining juniors Diahanna Ham and Stephanie Ouellette. She achieved her highest all-around score in the first meeting against Maryland at home on Jan. 11.
Woodford's selection is the third EAGL weekly award received by a Pack gymnast on the season, after Ham received Gymnast of the Week honors on Jan. 15, and freshman Brittni Watkins was named EAGL Rookie of the Week on Jan. 21.
NC State will return to action on Saturday, Feb. 16, when it hosts the annual Sweetheart Invitational at 7 p.m. in Reynolds Coliseum.
