During her freshman season, Finley was a part of the 4×400 relay team that won the 2018 Indoor Big 12 Championships. That same team went on to earn Indoor Second Team All-America honors , and from there, the floodgates opened for Finley’s successes.
After that, Finley would go on to claim five more All-America distinctions during her career (2019 Indoor Second Team All-America (DMR), 2020 Indoor All-American (4×400 Meter Relay), 2021 Indoor Second Team All-America (400 Meters) and 2022 Outdoor Second Team All-America (4×400 Meter Relay and 800 Meters).
Collegiately, Finley’s personal bests are as follows: 7.86 in the 60m, 52.27 in the 400m, 2:03.87 in the 800m, 23.77 in the 200m and 1:18.52 in the 600y.
"I’m excited to be a part of this great coaching staff. I look forward to gaining knowledge from the coaches I will be surrounded by and being able to motivate and support current and future Jayhawks. I contributed to this team’s success as an athlete and can’t wait to continue that now as a coach."Assistant Coach Honour Finley
