Fuller competed at the FHSAA 3A State Championships in his junior and senior years. The FHSAA system is split into four classes, with 1A being the smallest schools and 4A being the largest schools. At the 2020 State meet, Fuller competed in the 100 and 200 individual freestyles. He finished in 5th and 2nd place, respectively. He was also a member of Gainesville’s 200 and 400 freestyle relays.
In 2021, Fuller competed in the 200 and 500 yard freestyles. In the 200, he finished first with a 1:38.02, dropping .21 seconds. He came second in the 500, dropping more than two seconds from his previous best to post a 4:28.27. Fuller was also a member of Gainesville’s 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams for the second year in a row. They finished 3rd and 5th, respectively.
Several of Fuller’s best times were set recently at the 2022 Florida Swimming Spring Senior Championships in March. He swam the 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1000 freestyles as well as the 200 IM. He set new personal bests in the 200 free, 500 free, and 200 IM. In the 200 free, Fuller dropped .13 seconds in prelims and was the top seed heading into finals.
He dropped about one and a half seconds in prelims of the 500, then shaved another .27 off in finals to finish 4th. Fuller’s biggest time drop of the meet was in the 200 IM, where he swam nearly two and a half seconds faster than his previous best, clocking a 2:00.27.
At the 2022 ACC Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships, NC State came away champions with a 309-point lead over second place Louisville. With his current best times, Fuller would finish just a few spots away from making finals in his best events.
NC State expects to be even stronger next season, with an impressive class of incoming recruits. Fuller will be joining fellow class of 2022 graduates Quintin McCarty, Drew Salls, Lance Norris, and Michael Cotter in Raleigh in the fall.
