Mater Dei's Katie Lou Samuelson has finished her career as one of the top high school players in Orange County history. (Some say she is the best of all time, but that is something to debate at another time.) Here is a look back over her many highs, and some of the lows, from her four years of dominating play in the county.

Hot Shots: Katie Lou Samuelson's career

OCVARSITY.COM

Katie Lou Samuelson started out her high school career as the little sister from a family full of outstanding basketball players. (OK, a little sister with a tremendous shooting touch.)

Now a senior, she is considered the top player in the nation. She has cleaned up on most of this season’s top national awards, including the Gatorade Player of the Year honor she received Thursday, and she will soon move on to playing for college powerhouse UConn.

Is she the best player in Orange County history? Will she end up being a college and WNBA standout? Those are all questions worthy of consideration at this point.

But for now, here’s a slideshow that recounts the highs and lows in her four-year high school that began at Edison and is close to ending at Mater Dei.
