LOUDOUN COUNTY RAIDERS

Loudoun County junior Natalie Villaflor goes up for a layup during a 2016 playoff game. Villaflor needed just 62 varsity games to surpass 1,000 career points. Coach Derek Fisher says “the main thing you need to know about Natalie is that she loves to play basketball.”—Times-Mirror/Rick Wasser

Villaflor can score, plus much more on the basketball court

In the fall of 2014, Natalie Villaflor was a precocious freshman on Loudoun County High School's varsity, running the court alongside a bevy of seniors for one of the area's most consistently successful girls' basketball programs. By the end of 2016, she was the Conference 21-B reigning Player of the Year, and she'd exceeded the hallowed 1,000-point milestone. Furthermore, she'd become the sort of team leader those upperclassmen were to her, a couple of years ago.
