 “I didn’t believe it at first, and I am still in shock,” Conway said. “I think I have cried twice already.”
Conway will take a trip to Lake Toho in Kissimmee, Fla., after the second Bassmaster Elite Series event is over. Her husband, Steve, will go along with her. The trip includes airfare, ground transportation, hotel accommodations and $500 spending money.

Conway and her husband own a Triton boat, and after winning the sweepstakes, they are excited to add to it.
“I have been on a boat since I was 2 years old. I fished my first small tournament when I was 7 years old. I still fish wildcat and benefit tournaments in my hometown.
“My uncle used to babysit,” Conway said, “and that meant he was going fishing, and we were going with him. So to me fishing is everything; it’s all I really know.”
Conway was selected by random drawing out of 325,000 entries.
