A National Guard team has won the Army’s Best Ranger competition for the first time in its 33-year history, the service announced.

The officer-enlisted duo — Capt. Robert Killian of the Colorado Army National Guard and Staff Sgt. Erich Friedlein of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard — earned their place in Ranger history on Sunday after completing the grueling 60-hour event at Fort Benning, Georgia, with a come-from-behind victory, according to a press release from the National Guard Bureau.
