Fuller finishes time at CHS as FHSAA leader in home runs

By Ryan Butler

The 2012 district 1A-7 semi-final softball game provided the signature moment for one of the best players in county history.
 At times it looked like the top-seeded Union County Tigers would blow out the home team Indians. But Chiefland, a squad fresh off a roller coaster regular season and a record hovering around .500, had hung tight with of the best squads in the area.
It was the fourth inning, with the underdogs trailing 4-2 against the regular-season district champions. Chiefland began to chip away at the lead. Then they loaded the bases. Then Taylore Fuller stepped to the plate.
Fuller seldom saw a pitch to hit during the regular season. If the at-bat had any significance, Fuller usually saw four-straight pitches far, far outside. But Union County decided to pitch to her. The Tigers could have given up one run by walking Fuller again, eliminating the threat of further damage. Instead, Lake Butler’s Alexis Spriggle pitched to the Florida High School Athletic Association’s all-time home run hitter.
In short, Fuller added to her total.
