Katie Meyer: Stanford University Soccer Player Found Dead Inside Campus Residence at 22

Katie Meyer, a captain, and goalkeeper for the Stanford University women’s soccer team, has died, the school announced. She was 22.

Meyer, who was majoring in International Relations and minoring in History, was found dead in a campus residence, Stanford Vice Provost for Student Affairs Susie Brubaker-Cole said in a statement to the community on Wednesday.

The school did not reveal Meyer’s cause of death, but first reported the passing of a then-unnamed undergraduate student on Tuesday.

“Katie was extraordinarily committed to everything and everyone in her world,” Brubaker-Cole said. “Her friends describe her as a larger-than-life team player in all her pursuits, from choosing an academic discipline she said ‘changed my perspective on the world and the very important challenges that we need to work together to overcome’ to the passion she brought to the Cardinal women’s soccer program and to women’s sports in general.”

Meyer, a senior, previously made headlines in 2019 when she helped Stanford win the NCAA title against the University of North Carolina thanks to two saves with the game on the line.

Meyer, who was a senior studying international relations and history, played goalkeeper for the Cardinal and made two critical saves in a penalty shootout to help Stanford beat North Carolina in the 2019 national championship.

“Her friends describe her as a larger-than-life team player in all her pursuits, from choosing an academic discipline she said ‘changed my perspective on the world and the very important challenges that we need to work together to overcome’ to the passion she brought to the Cardinal women’s soccer program and to women’s sports in general,” Stanford said in a statement.

Meyer attended high school in Newbury Park, Calif. She took a redshirt during her freshman year at Stanford before making 16 appearances — all starts — in the 2019 campaign.

In addition to her stellar performances on the pitch, she had twice been named to the Pac-12 Conference’s Fall Academic Honor Roll.

“There are no words to express the deep sadness we feel about Katie Meyer’s passing,” Stanford athletic director Bernard Muir said in a news release. “Katie was an outstanding student-athlete and a beloved, passionate leader here at Stanford. Our entire athletics community is heartbroken and Katie will be deeply missed.”

The school said it has resources available for those impacted by Meyer’s death. There will be a candlelight vigil in honor of Meyer on Wednesday night at the main quad on Stanford’s campus for students, staff and alumni.
