Highschool hunting contest raises money for baseball team.

A hunting event called “Rabbit Round-Up” is a fundraiser for the Memphis High School baseball team. Coach John Francis is the one organizing the event for the ninth year.

“We don’t have rabbits in a barrel. This is 100 percent fair chase,” said Francis who also told 7 Action News that the event was not organized by the school, and each team is responsible for their own hunting location.

Brad Gudme, superintendent of Memphis Community Schools, said there have not been any issues in the nine years the event has taken place.

“It’s a great way for community to come together and support the baseball team,” Gudme said.
