"I want to get this win more than anything," she said, "especially with my dad being the coach and with me, his daughter, being that it's my last year."
For father and daughter, the coach-player relationship will last until the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference playoffs the week of Feb. 11. With college ahead, Jen may be more ready to move on than her father.
Like any father, Jerry Hahn will treasure the memories.
"How great it has been, that I get to share so much more time with my daughter and all because of basketball," he said. "I also get to experience with her the ups and downs of basketball and her school life. This is really special. I know the big game will be special, but I think it will hit me at our last game. After all the years coaching her, what will be missed most is that time spent together."
