Kloey Fullerton – Harding Academy (501 Basketball Team 2024)

As a four-year starter, Kloey Fullerton has one goal left — to close out her Lady Wildcat basketball career as a champion.

“We want to get to the finals, but to also grow close as a team,” she said. “I want to be remembered by the way I carry myself and how I act towards my teammates and my coaches — the look I have on my face and what I say or don’t say.”

Fullerton comes by athletics honestly. Her father, Shane, is the baseball coach at Harding Academy. She passed the 1,000-point mark last season. She averaged 10.5 points per game a year ago, earning all-conference and honorable mention all-state honors.

“Kloey is tough and tough-minded,” said Harding Academy Head Coach Rusty Garner. “She is a terrific shooter who has evolved into a good scorer who plays with tenacity. She hates losing even more than she likes winning. Kloey leads with her toughness, high motor and work ethic. She is regularly found celebrating big baskets made by teammates and pushes teammates to be better. We expect Kloey to represent her faith, her family and our program in a wonderful way while also being one of the better players anywhere in our conference.

“Kloey is a quality young lady who is thoughtful and considerate. She has the same compassion, toughness and work ethic in school, social groups and other sports. It’s just who she is as a person.”

Fullerton is a two-sport athlete, and she has committed to play soccer for Harding University.
