As the Washington Stealth get set to play the Rochester Knighthawks in the this Saturday’s National Lacrosse League championship game, two of the team’s stars were honored by league.

Forward Rhys Duch was been named a first-team All-Pro and defenseman Mike Grimes was named a second-team All-Pro on Tuesday.
