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.”

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.
