DaKine is thrilled to announce that DaKine Athlete, Maddie Butters has verbally committed to play NCAA Division I Beach Volleyball at Houston Baptist University. Butters made the transition from indoor to beach volleyball in the Summer of 2017. Her dedication and tenacity have been an incredible driver for her very fast and very steep learning curve on the beach.

Butters joined DaKine in April of 2017 – after one summer of play in the Puget Sound and in California it became clear that she was catching the attention of beach volleyball coaches at top schools across the nation. In October 2018 she made the decision to make the commitment to full time beach volleyball. Very shortly after that Maddie made the decision to commit verbally to Houston Baptist University to play for their beach team.

We are so proud of you Maddie and know that this is just the beginning of your incredible journey!
