Preslie Poling

2021 XIT Rodeo Queen

Preslie Poling is the 17-year-old daughter of Todd and Honey Poling. She has one older brother Tucker Poling and two younger brothers Bo and Levi Poling. She is currently a junior attending Clayton high school. She enjoys showing horses, running barrels and poles, as well as playing basketball where she is currently the team captain. She has had the honor of serving two years as Union County fair princess, reigning from 2018-2020. Preslie has played sports her whole life having a very strong love for basketball. She has always been known on the court as “Scrappy” or “Robo girl”. The nickname scrappy came from Preslie‘s effort and heart on the court; she always gives everything she has and leaves it on the court. The nickname Robo girl comes from her coach after a recent history of three knee surgeries and wearing a knee brace which her coach says makes her bionic like Robo girl. Her previous two years in high school, her team had advanced to the semi finals both years. Preslie has also shown great interest in horses and rodeo since she could ride. Her very first horse Canello taught her not only how to ride but also the connection a rider shares with her horse. Preslie fairly recently got very interested in rodeo because saw how much she loved working cattle with her dad and riding in general. Over the last couple years, she has shared time between the basketball court and attended many jackpots, local rodeos, and is participating in the Texas High School Rodeo Association. This year is her first year in Region 1 and is hopeful and excited for what these new opportunities and experience will bring. Preslie‘s freshman year of high school she won the district Creed contest and qualified for state. She is also very active in her FFA chapter, this last year her Horse judging team won state and qualified for nationals. Preslie has always looked up to the former XIT queens. She has seen how hard they were and their dedication towards everything they put their mind to. Just as our former queens such as Kaylee Mitchell, Jaden Nixon, Shelby Spellman, and Devon Running, Preslie is carrying on this XIT tradition not only to encourage young girls to follow their dreams but to encourage anybody and everybody that their dreams are possible all it takes is a little hard work and determination. And to remind people even if they don’t get what they think they want God has a plan for you and to stay faithful.
