The 14-year-old girl who died after falling from a cliff while visiting Minnesota's North Shore with friends on Sunday has been identified as a Somerset, Wis., high school student.

Bailey Be­lisle was a freshman at Somerset High School, Principal Shannon Donnelly said Monday. She fell from Palisade Head, a rock formation near Silver Bay.

Donnelly said Belisle was a volleyball player. She would have played on Tuesday, but that game has since been rescheduled.

"You can tell that she had an impact on many, many kids in this building," Donnelly said. "We're a very close community. Everyone knows everyone, and this is hitting students and staff very hard."

On Monday, Donnelly wrote an e-mail to families and staff about the incident.

"I am writing with great sadness to inform you that one of our students, Bailey Belisle, has passed away in a hiking accident.

"Our thoughts and sympathies are with her family and friends," Donnelly wrote.

Extra counselors were at the school Monday to meet with students and staff.

According to the Lake County Sheriff's Office, bystanders rappelled down the cliff to provide first aid around 1 p.m. on Sunday. Belisle later died from her injuries at a hospital.

Palisade Head's high point is more than 300 feet above the level of Lake Superior.

The Sheriff's Office is investigating.
