The university shared resources for students grieving and said they will “continue to reach out and offer support to the many campus community members who knew her.”
“There are no words to express the emptiness that we feel at this moment. We are reaching out to all of you in our community, because this impacts all of us. Please know you are not alone. There are resources available to support us during this difficult time. We can all help by checking in on friends and loved ones. Be caring to yourselves and one another. We will grieve this great loss together, and we will be here for each other.”
Meyer steered the Cardinal to a 2019 national championship win with two pivotal penalty-kick saves against North Carolina. Stanford’s statement called her a “larger-than-life team player in all her pursuits.”
