Miss Boitanio Mall, Terris Billyboy

Hello Williams Lake and surrounding community! My name is Terris Billyboy, Miss Boitanio Mall.

Hello Williams Lake and surrounding community!

My name is Terris Billyboy, Miss Boitanio Mall.

I am 18 years old and a fourth generation cowgirl, born and raised here in Williams Lake.

I am currently a student at Thompson Rivers University studying Applied Business Technology.

Rodeo has always been a part of my life.

Watching my dad ride bulls and me competing at seven years old fostered a deep passion in me for the sport.

I come from a family of rough stock riders, making my sister and I  the first generation of timed event competitors.

Thanks to Mom for buying horses, Dad for driving, Jim Mulvahill for teaching me to ride and his wife, Norma Mulvahill, for the wardrobe of shirts and making the best cheering section ever.

I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for them.

The Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo was my very first rodeo contending as a PeeWee Barrel Racer.

The more I entered, the more I wanted to learn and that is when I met Allison Everett, an all around cowgirl, who thankfully helped me to improve my skills.

I’ve been all over B.C. participating in different rodeo associations and many events from barrel and flat racing to pole bending, goat tying, steer riding and breakaway roping. I have enjoyed every opportunity to be in the arena and always look forward to the next.

What brings me to run for Stampede Queen you may ask? Having run for the B.C. High School Rodeo Queen, I enjoyed the experience and was titled Personal Interview winner and Miss Congeniality. The Williams Lake Stampede Queen contest was calling my name.

An opportunity to promote the great city of Williams Lake and the wonderful sport of rodeo, I can’t wait to see everything the coming months have in store for us.

I hope to see you all at the 86th annual Williams Lake Stampede from June 29 to July 2.
