Finn Garners AVCA All-America Honorable Mention

Dec. 15, 2004

Clemson senior outside hitter Leslie Finn was named an honorable mention All-American by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) on Wednesday. She is the first Tiger volleyball player since Cindy Stern (second-team) in 1999 to earn All-America honors from the AVCA.

Finn concluded the 2004 season with a team and ACC-best 684 kills and 5.61 per game. The 684 kills set a single-season record at Clemson. She also became the Tigers’ all-time kills leader with 1,906 over her four-year career. Finn broke the record on senior night at home against Duke.

The San Diego, CA native and team captain earned AVCA All-Region and first-team All-ACC honors earlier this season. She is a two-time All-Region and two-time first-team All-ACC performer. Finn was also named to the All-ACC Tournament team after leading Clemson to a 3-1 upset over #1 seed Georgia Tech in the second round.

Finn, who finished second on the team with 397 digs, was named Clemson’s Most Valuable Player and Most Valuable Offensive Player recently at the year-ending awards banquet.
