Two senior NCOs from the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade took top honors at Fort Benning, Georgia, Sunday in the annual Best Ranger competition.

Sgts. 1st Class Joshua Rolfes and Anthony Allen bested 50 other two-man teams who competed over three days and a dozen events to prove themselves the best of the Army’s Ranger-qualifiedsoldiers, according to a Fort Benning release.

Rolfes and Allen, one of four ARTB teams, stayed ahead of the pack for most of the competition, never falling below eighth place and going into the final day’s events in first place. They were also repeat competitors, having come in fourth place last year.

Capt. Matthew Thwaites and 1st Lt. Kendall Ward of the 75th Ranger Regiment claimed second place, and 1st Lt. Jeremy Dettmer and Cpl. Tyler Taormina, also from the Ranger Regiment, came in third.
