Out of over 100 National Guard soldiers and airmen, a York County man took first place in the 2020 Governor’s Twenty match to determine the best marksmen.
The Governor’s Twenty is a state-level National Guard award presented annually to the top 20 shooters in a state, according to a news release.
Army Sergeant Jason Goodling, of York, was first in Pennsylvania’s top 20 after competing with rifles and pistols in several courses at Fort Indiantown Gap.
“Congratulations to Sgt. Jason Goodling, our overall first-place finisher, along with every competitor for their display of professionalism and impressive skill during this intense competition,” Maj. Gen. Anthony Carrelli said in the news release.
Goodling and the other recipients were given an embroidered Governor’s Twenty tab and a certificate that identifies them as “outstanding marksmen.”
Goodling was also the combined-arms individual overall champion.
