Inside Lacrosse released its annual "Face-Off Yearbook" this week, which features preseason polls and honors leading into the 2015 women's lacrosse season, and student-athlete from the James Madison women's lacrosse team – senior attacker Stephanie Finley (#3)(Media, Pa./Sacred Heart) – earned preseason All-American honors. Finley received an honorable mention.

Finley was named captain, along with Lexi Cross for the 2015 season by Head Coach Shelley Klaes-Bawcombe after fall practice concluded last month.

Finley's honorable mention nod comes one year after she won CAA Co-Player of the Year, scoring a team-high 44 goals while tallying 15 assists for 59 points. On the way to the Co-Player of the Year award, she set the single-season record for draw controls with 69 in 2014. The First Team All-CAA performer also earned CAA All-Tournament honors while being named a second-team member of the IWLCA All-South Region team. Finley notched ECAC Division I Women's Lacrosse All-Star Second Team honors while pulling in First Team All-State University Division recognition.
Over the summer, Finley tried out for the U.S. National Team. Finley was selected as a member of the 38-player roster along with assistant coach Emily Garrity and 2007 grad Kelly (Berger) Rabil.
