Flowers takes over on and off court to help Lafayette back to final four
Lancers (30-6) in position to win a state-record sixth successive Class 4 state championship this weekend at Show-Me Center in Cape Girardeau.
Francis Howell (35-1-1), Ozark (27-9) and St. Teresa’s Academy (25-6-1) stand in the way of the five-time defending champs. Pool play begins at Friday at 4 p.m. The title match is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
Flowers and her ability to successfully move into an unfamiliar position has played a key role in the Lancers’ success.
“She’s really matured and turned the corner in all aspects of her game,” Young said. “Especially the last few weeks. You can just see it. She has fire in her eyes. She wants the ball.”
Flowers said it took about half of the season to get used to the team captaincy, which she shares with fellow seniors Emelie Orlando and Mell Flowers (no relation).
But Flowers quietly has grown into a leader the team can trust at crunch time.
“At first when you meet her, she's pretty quiet,” Orlando said. “But this year, she’s been outspoken when we’ve needed it. If you need to step up, she’ll tell you.”
Flowers, who has made a verbal commitment to attend the University of Memphis, played a key role in keeping the team poised Saturday during the Lancers’ 20-25, 25-16, 25-17 win over St. Joseph’s in an intensity-filled quarterfinal contest.
Lafayette dropped the first set and trailed by two early in the second before Flowers helped trigger a turnaround.
“We just didn’t want the season to end, so we started to get things together,” Flowers said.

Lafayette rallies past Howell to capture sixth successive state crown ...
CAPE GIRARDEAU • Lafayette sophomore Staciana Stock is not afraid to admit it.
Yes, the powerful outside hitter was worried to death after her team fell way behind in the Class 4 state volleyball championship match against Francis Howell on Saturday at Show-Me Center in Cape Girardeau.
The five-time defending champions had their backs as far against the proverbial wall as possible.
"Yes, I was scared," Stock said. "But, I just kept the fire in my eyes. And I knew in my heart we could still do it."
She was right.
Stock and the Lancers bounced back up off the canvas to record a stunning 20-25, 27-25, 25-21 win over the Vikings to claim their state record sixth successive championship.
Lafayette (33-6-1) continued an amazing run that began in 2011.
The six successive titles eclipses the five in a row set by Incarnate Word Academy from 1983-87 and equaled by Lafayette last season.
"It's really sort of unbelievable," said Lafayette senior hitter Hannah Flowers. "This was all about our hea... (STLtoday.com)Apr 22, 2016
Past Presidents Remembered
Ross and Roy Saunders lived and breathed the venues industry

Last week, the venue industry lost two who gave back and paid it forward all their lives - David B. Ross and Roy Saunders.
Ross, 63, was president of IAVM in 2005-06, when it was still known as the International Association of Auditorium Managers (IAAM) and while he was managing Show Me Center, Cape Girardeau, Mo. He joined IAVM in 1985.
Among his legacies to the association was establishing the Mega Shelters Best Practices Guidelines after Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma that turned many venues into shelters. He also worked to put the "I" in IAVM, reaching out to Australia and Europe.
Roy Saunders, 85, led that association in 1986-87 and built and managed the public assembly facilities in Tulsa, Okla., for three decades.

Planting in the summer? Why not?

One of the most frequent questions asked at this time of the year is, "Is it OK to plant trees and shrubs in my landscape at this time of the year, or should I wait until fall or spring?"
My facetious answer is, "You can plant most trees and shrubs at any time of the year except when the ground is frozen." So now is a good time to plant.
When you plant trees and shrubs during the summer months, you simply do what you would do when planting in the spring or fall.
First, dig a hole no deeper than the pot the plant comes in. If it is a balled and burlap plant, aka B&B, dig the hole no deeper than the depth of the root ball.
The width of the hole should be two times the diameter of the root ball or container. While digging the planting hole, be sure to rough up the sides and bottom of the hole. This will help new plant roots grow out of the planting hole.
