“I feel really good that I was able to get the team some points,” said Woodward of her day. “That’s what I was hoping for. I’m coming off my first college season and I’m looking forward to the next step. I was happy to be given the opportunity to compete in Spain. (Our coaches) back at the hotel talked about so many times about leaving it all out there and representing our country well. Regardless of where I finished, I’m really proud to be a face for the country in the junior level, especially in this Olympic year. Not only that, but it is a great opportunity for me to represent the University of Oregon and the running history we have there and start to show off that American talent in distance running that we do have.”
