This Week’s Mountain Lion of the Week is junior softball player Haley Bakke. Through injury and adversity, Haley has shown a tremendous dedication to her team. Haley is an outstanding communicator, not to mention kind and respectful to all she encounters.

Here is what the people who nominated Haley had to say: “Although injured, Haley has been a big part of helping and supporting Liberty Bell softball. She is there for every practice and has great ideas for warm-up drills. A good positive attitude for manager of the team.” And another person said: “She is very upbeat and positive with a big smile. She is a quality friend to those who are close and an inspiration to those who may not be as close. Haley is an exceptionally caring human being who gives all of herself in so many ways.”
