Former Drexel player loses battle with lung cancer

Laura Meikle Koch, 28, one of the greatest players in Drexel women's soccer history, died June 13 from lung cancer at Neighborhood Hospice in West Chester.
"It was a total shock for this to happen to someone so young," Koch's former soccer coach at Drexel, Ray Goon, wrote in an e-mail. "It's just not right."
Koch, who played for the Dragons from 1998 to 2001, left as Drexel's all-time leader in goals (16) and points (39). She tallied a single-game record three goals Oct. 27, 1998 against St. Peter's.
After graduating Drexel in 2002, Koch worked for the Veterinary Referral Center in Frazer, a 24-hour emergency care center, and loved to nurture animals.
