COLUMBIA — Last week's best photographs included scenes from the Columbia Public Schools final days before letting out for the summer, the Bianchi Cup competition and the Salute to Veterans air show.

Megan Donohue went to fifth grade's Field Day at Fairview Elementary School and captured this image of Ava Butler, 11, participating in the "minute to win it." Also at the the event, fifth-graders ate pizza and celebrated their graduation.

In this photograph by Unho Yi, Bianca Mello, right, helps her twin sister, Nicole, fix her mortar board. They graduated from Hickman High School on Thursday at the Mizzou Arena. Both will be attending MU in the fall on athletic scholarships. 


After a season-ending loss of 1-0 to the University of Washington, Unho Yi captured this image of the Missouri softball players high-fiving their coaches.  The Friday loss was the softball team's second straight Super Regional loss.

In this photograph by Unho Yi, Rock Bridge graduates wait to return to their seats after receiving their diplomas. There were 570 members of the Rock Bridge High School graduating class.


Quint Smith caught this family avoiding the rain by sitting underneath a plane's tail at the Salute to Veterans air show on Saturday. Rob and Tina Hargis sit with their children, twins, Evan and Isaac, 17, Jesse, 9, Owen, 7, under the tail of a 1945 Lockheed PV-2 Harpoon named "Attu Warrior."


Michelle Cerino fires her M&P Pro 9mm during the Bianchi Cup, in this photo from Sini Stephan on Friday.  She was shooting at a moving target and it was her first time competing in the Bianchi Cup, which was held in Hallsville.
