Chamberlain seniors Amber Fullwood and Lindsey Hagberg, both of whom helped guide the Chiefs softball team to the Class 7A state title last season, will sign Wednesday with Florida A&M and Harvard, respectively.

Harvard, an Ivy League program, doesn't award athletic scholarships per se. Hagberg, who owns a 5.98 weighted GPA (3.94 non-weighted) according to Coach Bobby Diez, has been accepted into the school and invited to join the Crimson's softball program.

A power-hitting catcher, Hagberg hit .542 with two home runs, 12 doubles and 37 RBI for the Chiefs (27-7), who staged rallies in both the 7A semifinal and title game. She went 2-for-4 in the final, a 9-8 win against Bartow, collecting a double and four RBI.

Fullwood (pictured), the Chiefs' full-time starter earlier in her career, went 5-3 with a 2.79 ERA in nearly 38 innings as a junior, and collected a .326 batting average.

She relieved starter Rachel Dwyer in the state semifinals and final when the starter struggled, and earned the victory in both contests. In 8.2 state tournament innings, she allowed eight hits and six runs, fanning five and walking four.
