Lake County sheriff's officials in Minnesota say Bailey Belisle was visiting Palisade Head near Silver Bay with friends on Sunday when she fell from the top of the cliff. The high point is more than 300 feet above lake level.

The Star Tribune says extra counselors are at the high school to meet with students and staff. Principal Shannon Donnelly says Belisle's death is hitting the students and teachers very hard.

Belisle was a volleyball player. The volleyball game on Tuesday has been rescheduled.
