She remembers all the times she and her teammates would say to each other, “Gee, wouldn’t it be great if we had videotapes of our dives?” So years later, when Denise received a mailing from the swim team coach to raise funds for a video camera, she promptly purchased one outright for the student athletes following in her wake.
