The Wildcats, who were seeded No. 3 in the tournament, eliminated the two teams seeded ahead of them -- Chattahoochee and Creekview -- in going undefeated during the two-day event.
"They did a great job this weekend," Woodland coach Adrian Tramutola said. "A lot of the kids really stepped up. ... They really came through for us."
The Wildcats were without starters Chad Hawkins and Caius Martin at the 112- and 125-pound weight classes, respectively.
Other wrestlers stepped up, Tramutola said, especially in Woodland's title-clinching 53-19 win over No. 1 Creekview, who beat the Wildcats earlier in the season.
"We lost 37-34 the first time. We had some guys out of weight class," he said. "It really did [feel good to win]. The kids, you could tell they were ready, physically and mentally.
"They were ready to get after them."
Sophomore Dino Dorris won a match that illustrated the kind of effort Woodland got from its wrestlers.
Dorris, whom Tramutola bumped up from 160 to 171, trailed in his match before rallying for the victory in the overtime.
"He was losing 5-1 with about 30 seconds in the period," the Wildcats coach added. "From there, it really sparked our team."
Ricky Ranel pinned at 189, Clint Lemon won by major decision at 215 and Jake Norris, whom Tramutola said has had an up-and-down year, scored for Woodland, too.
"Once we got going in those weight classes, it seemed like the momentum was really going our way," he said.
After a first-round bye, the Wildcats defeated Johns Creek 63-17 Friday to move on to the semifinals, where they faced No. 2 Chattahoochee.
"We didn't wrestle real well. We had some kids that were winning [their matches], kind of lost their focus and got pinned in the match," Tramutola said of Woodland's showing in the semis.
The Wildcats were trailing going into their last two matches, but had senior Ryan Cecil, a state champ at 125 last year, and junior Jordy Henson coming up at 130 and 135, respectively, a comforting sight for a head coach, as the two helped Woodland to a 40-32 win.
"Down by two going into our last two matches ... I felt good about that. [It's] not the way we wanted to wrestle, but the result was good," Tramutola said.
The Wildcats' latest area duals title likely has brought smiles amongst those in the Woodland contingent -- "I think everybody's excited about it," Tramutola said -- but much remains to be accomplished.
"Last year, we won the region, and it had been awhile since we'd won the region. ... I think we were thrilled to be there, which we should [have been]," Tramutola said.
Despite a No. 1 seed, he did not feel the Wildcats believed they could actually win the Class AAAA state duals, which manifested itself in an upset loss to No. 8 Rockdale County in the quarterfinals.
"This year, we're seeded a little lower ... but I don't think the stage fright is going to be that big of an issue for us," Tramutola continued. "Like this weekend, seeds don't matter. ... Kids will wrestle it out and the best team will come out Saturday night. Hopefully, it's us.
"If your goal is to win a state championship, you gotta win four matches in a row. ... That's what we'll try to do.
Woodland is scheduled to arrive in Macon Thursday for weigh-ins and wrestling will begin Friday at the Macon Centreplex.
The Wildcats, a No. 4 seed, face No. 13 seed Mundy's Mill in first-round action.
