“Katie was extraordinarily committed to everything and everyone in her world,” the statement 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

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.”

The letter also referred to Meyer’s helping Stanford win its third NCAA women’s soccer championship in 2019
