As they prepare to lead the Middletown girls basketball team into its first state semifinal since 2013, Knights coach Amy Poffenbarger and her daughter, Saylor, are the guests on The Final Score podcast this week.
Why are the Middletown girls playing their best basketball at the right time of the season? How do Amy and Saylor balance their relationship as both a mother and daughter and coach and player? How is Saylor managing the process as a highly regarded Division I recruit? Amy and Saylor chat with host Greg Swatek about these topics. Plus, learn more about some of the other players that make Middletown’s team so successful.
Also, with four state semifinals on tap involving Frederick County teams, FNP sports writer Joe Ferraro stops by to preview the games. Can the Frederick High girls become the first county team to win three state titles in a row in basketball? What sort of chances do the Oakdale boys, the Thomas Johnson boys and the Middletown girls have of claiming championships?
