  • Mark Gorthey (the sweetheart of the TET Offensive), what a gorgeous man. You deserved this qual! #TETOffensive

  • Not a big deal, but “Westlake” debated “Westwood” in the semis. So it should read “Westlake MG def. Westwood AG.”

  • Mark Gorthey

    I’m also coached by Kris Wright, want to make sure he gets credit for the tremendous influence he’s had in my career this year!
