All Grant Shafer and Rick Smith wanted was a little recognition.

This season the two recently graduated Lincoln-Way co-op team lacrosse players finally got it.

Both Shafer, who attended Lincoln-Way West, and Smith, who attended Lincoln-Way East, were named to this seasons Illinois High School Lacrosse Association All-State team. They were certainly deserving of it as they helped Lincoln-Way to an outstanding 18-2 record on the season.
