Officials on Thursday released the manner of death of a star Stanford University goalkeeper who was found unresponsive in her campus residence this week.

Katie Meyer’s death was determined to be self-inflicted, and there is no indication of foul play, Santa Clara County said in a statement obtained by NBC Bay Area.

The county’s medical examiner and coroner’s office is investigating her death, and no additional information was released.

“The Medical Examiner-Coroner extends sincerest condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Katie Meyer,” the statement said.

Meyer, 22, an international relations major from Newbury Park, California, would have been a senior headed into this fall season.

Meyer was best known for stopping two penalty kicks in a dramatic shootout victory over the University of North Carolina in the 2019 NCAA final as Stanford hoisted the Women’s College Cup.

In the 2021 season, Meyer, the team captain, played in all 20 of Stanford’s matches as the Cardinal finished fourth in the Pac-12 conference and advanced to postseason play before it bowed out to a local rival, Santa Clara University.

She was found dead in her dorm Tuesday. The school made her death public Wednesday.

Her death was felt throughout the tightly knit world of women’s soccer.
