D
enise Conway Crawford was on all three
Mighty Macs national championship teams
from 1972 to 1974. A graduate of Archbishop
Prendergast High School, she coached the
basketball teams at Ridley South Junior High
School for four years where she taught foreign
languages. She also coached junior varsity and
varsity basketball for Catholic Youth Organizations
for 15 years and was awarded the “For God and
Youth Award” for her service to the community.
Crawford received her Pennsylvania license to
sell real estate in 1984 and currently works as
a realtor for Century 21 Alliance. She is active
in Annunciation Parish in Havertown, PA, where
she is on the parish council, a member of the St.
Vincent de Paul Society, and serves as a Eucharistic
minister. She has been married to Jim Crawford
for 36 years. They reside in Havertown, PA and
have four children and four grandchildren.
Crawford comments on her experience with the Mighty
Macs that, “We had absolutely nothing but our God-
given talent and our camaraderie. We had our own
sneakers, and our own socks. We bought our own
warm-ups and we used the hand-me-down uniforms
that teams had used before us. Honestly, that was
enough. We won three national championships with
very little equipment, but with a lot of heart.”
