Filming College Tennis Made Easy

Living in Denver, I often take in their matches when they are playing in town.  So stopping by to check out their match this weekend against Marquette, I was gratified to see that even before the start of the match, they had 6 (six) cameras already set up and running  before the doubles point actually started.
