The idea that such a big beast of burden could acquire Corvette-like qualities might strike you as fodder for an automotive tale from the Brothers Grimm. You know, off-road frog turns into the prince of speed. But, in fact, the fun-loving mad scientists at Jeep have wrought something as Viperish as it is SUVish.

As a field-event performer in track, Cherokee senior Jess Woodard has gained a national reputation for all her accomplishments. And while it is impressive enough that she won the shot put and placed second in the discus at the New Balance Nationals last summer in Greensboro, N.C., or that she has twice won the discus title at the NJSIAA Meet of Champions, Woodard's work in her so-called second sport tells a great deal about her competitive nature and...
