3X High School All American becomes a Mav
Michael Dauterive will be transferring to the University of Texas Arlington from University of Nebraska and will be competing for the Mavericks wrestling team this fall. “We look forward to having Michael on the team this upcoming season. He’s the total package, a person of character, a fierce competitor and a very solid student,” said the UTA Coach, Casey Hudson. As Redshirt Freshman, Michael wrestled in the 125-pound weight class, earning a 14-18 record. He competed in nine open tournaments, with his best finish being sixth place at the Quality Hotel Open, where he went 3-2. Dauterive pinned five opponents in 2011-12, with his fastest in 1:45.
Michael Dauterive had stellar high school career, three-time All-American at the Fargo national championships, earning the honor twice in Greco and once in Freestyle. He had a strong 128-23 career record at McKinney Boyd High School in Boyd, Texas and won the high school state championship in the 103-pound weight class, the first-ever title in the McKinney Independent School District. Dauterive earned four letters in wrestling.
The son of Paul and April Dauterive, Michael has two older sisters, Tara Piperis and Lindsay Kriebel along with a younger brother, Nick. “The Dauterive’s are now part of the Maverick wrestling family,” said Coach Hudson.
