Stanford University women’s soccer captain Katie Meyer dies of suicide, authorities say

STANFORD, California – Stanford goalkeeper Katie Meyer, who led the Cardinal to victory in the 2019 NCAA College Cup, has died of suicide, authorities announced on Thursday. It was 22.

“There is no indication of an aggressive game and Meyer’s death was determined to have been caused by himself,” said a statement issued by Santa Clara County Medical Examiner. “The county of Santa Clara is not disclosing any additional information about the case at this time.”

Stanford first announced the death of a student at one of its dormitories on Monday. On Tuesday, the university confirmed that he was the footballer, a senior official in international relations.

Meyer stopped two penalty kicks and led Stanford to a 5-4 win over North Carolina after a scoreless draw in the 2019 league game.

The native of California caught the eye for her animated celebration after the second shot, before teammate Kiara Pickett pierced her attempt to give Stanford the trophy.

“Katie has been extremely committed to everything and everyone in her world. Her friends describe her as a player in all her pursuits, from choosing an academic field, as she said” she changed my view of the world and the very important challenges “that we must work together to overcome the passion he brought to the Cardinal women’s soccer program and to women’s sports in general,” Stanford said in a statement.

According to a biography page posted on the Stanford Athletics websiteMeyer was born in Burbank and graduated from Century Academy in Thousand Oaks in 2018.

The school says it watched and played football for Newbury Park High for three years.
