Stanford women wear shirts in honor of soccer star who died by suicide

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KRON) — Ahead of their Final Four game against the University of Connecticut on Friday, the Stanford women honored Katie Meyer by wearing Stanford soccer t-shirts during warmups.

Meyer, a former Stanford goalkeeper, was 22 years old when she died by suicide in March — months away from graduating with a degree in International Relations.

KRON4’s Jason Dumas is at the Target Center in Minneapolis and tweeted these photos.

Meyer led the Cardinal soccer team to a national championship in 2019.
