Two soldiers recently nabbed top honors at … wait for it, the Marine Corps Scout Sniper Basic Course held by the 2nd Marine Division.

Sgt. Clinton Scanlon and Sgt. Bryce Fox were named high shooter and high stalker in the course that graduated the year’s first crop of Marine snipers on April 13 at Camp Geiger on Marine Corps Air Station New River, North Carolina, according to a Marine Corps release.

The pair had a slight advantage, though, since both already had graduated the Army’s sniper school.

“We did go through U.S. Army Sniper School so I think we definitely had a leg up on some of the fresh Marines right out of the fleet,” said Scanlon, who was high shooter. “It was clear that everyone here knew what they were doing and the instructors were able to get the guys here shooting very well.”
