The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) released their list of four finalists for this year's Honda Award. Each year, the Collegiate Women's Sports Awards presents the title to the best athlete across 12 sanctioned NCAA sports. The recipient is then eligible for the Collegiate Women Athlete of the Year award as well as the 2016 Honda Cup presented on June 27 on CBS Sports Network.

Syracuse's Kayla Treanor, along with Maryland's Taylor Cummings and Alice Mercer as well as Notre Dame's Barbara Sullivan, are all vying for this year's award.

Treanor set an all-time single-season record for draw controls with 217. Her 9.04 per game average ranked first in the nation this year. She led the team with 50 goals and 40 assists and her 90 total points were good for eighth nationwide. Her 393 career points total ranks fourth all-time, and second in the Orange's history. The 260 career goals scored holds the top spot in Syracuse record books, and sixth all-time in Division I history.

Treanor is also a finalist again for the Tewaaraton Award presented to the best collegiate women's and men's lacrosse players across the country. The winners will be announced later today.
