Chilson shatters 13-second barrier

The girls 100-meter 13-second barrier can be tough to beat as evidenced by the very few high school athletes who eclipse the magical mark each season. But that wasn’t the case for three speedsters April 20 at Eastern Arizona Rotary Invitational in Safford. There, Lady Horn Morgan Chilson bested a field of 31 sprinters, setting a personal best mark of 12.77. Runner-up Jessica Copper of Coolidge also was under 13 seconds at 12.90. St. Johns’ Savannah Brown, a nemesis of Chilson’s for the past three seasons, was third in 12.98.
