Prep Spotlight: Loveday pushes aside shoulder injury to help Bayfield soccer

Sophomore plays through pain to help the Wolverines win games
Bayfield’s Halle Loveday (17) takes command of the situation – as well as the ball – against Alamosa’s Malia Tuioti-Mariner during last Saturday’s match inside Wolverine Country Stadium. Loveday’s 46th-minute penalty kick held as the winning score in a 2-0 victory. Loveday has a goal or an assist in each of the team’s last four games, all while playing with a serious shoulder injury.

Behind the scenes

What is your favorite sports movie?: “She’s the Man,” it’s a classic on this team, and we always watch it at team dinners.

Who is your favorite artist?: Bob Marley. I love listening to reggae, and him since I was like 3. I listen to it before games because it calms me down and gets me focused.

What do you like to eat before a Game?: I love a peanut butter and honey sandwich before the game. I got it from a teammate last year and now I do that, too.

What is your dream car?: Jeep Patriot

What was your favorite childhood book?: “Skippyjon Jones,” by Judith Byron Schachner. It’s different but it was cool.

If you could have any superpower, what would you pick and why?: Teleportation, because it’d actually affect my health and wellbeing. I could wake up an hour later and get to class no problem.

What is your favorite local outdoor activity?: I love hiking Ice Lakes and Purgatory.

Who is your favorite professional athlete?: Tobin Heath from the U.S. women’s national team. I wear her No. 17, and she’s just a really intelligent player. Also, I’m so excited for the World Cup this summer.

If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?: I’d say Italy because of the history. It’s pretty there and the culture there looks great.

What teacher has had the biggest impact on you?: Ms. Jan Patton. She was my integrated science teacher last year and really sparked my interest in science and made things understandable, which is really nice when you’re interested in something. She’s very enthusiastic and that made me enthusiastic.

Do you have a role model?: I look up to coach (Jen) Moore a lot because she pushes me to do my best and never hesitates to tell me the truth and what I need to do rather than sugarcoating things.
