  • Curtis Ogren had just lowered his own national independent school record in the 200 individual medley at the CCS swim championships. But rather than swimming, the St. Francis star wanted to talk baseball. He noted that classmate John Gavin is his best friend. "We play golf together," Ogren said. "Since he's a pitcher, he doesn't have to worry about messing up his swing."
