With the induction of Marilyn Gould Hale, the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame had its first ever husband-wife inductees in the history of the organization. In 1987, her husband, George, was inducted for his outstanding achievements in horseshoe pitching.
Hale earned this prestigious honor for her work in the sport of smallbore rifle and pistol competitive target shooting since 1954.
She was born June 29, 1938, in Bradford, Pennsylvania, and spent her summers in Chautauqua County from 1945-1956 before her family moved to Lakewood in late 1956.
Hale began her shooting career at Bradford Senior High School where she graduated in 1956 and holds many state titles, both in Pennsylvania and New York State.
