Orlando Pride, Kansas City Current honor Katie Meyer before scrimmage


The Orlando Pride and Kansas City Current honored late Stanford goalkeeper Katie Meyer before a preseason scrimmage on Wednesday night. Meyer, a captain on the Stanford women’s soccer team and an NCAA champion, died Tuesday in a campus residence at 22 years old.

Players from the two teams stood together in a circle for a moment of silence, with some wearing tape on their wrists with the the letters “KM.”

“Our hearts go out to Katie’s family, friends and the Stanford soccer community,” the Current wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night.

A three-year starter for the Cardinal, Meyer made two key saves in a penalty shootout to lead Stanford to its third NCAA championship in 2019.

Meyer was found dead in a Stanford residence building Tuesday, and the university confirmed her identity Wednesday. No cause of death was given.
