It's customary procedure for Sumiyasu to strap on the gloves and protect the net while playing goalkeeper for the Yale University women's soccer program. She's prepared to make a beeline across the crease and make routine and acrobatic saves to keep the Bulldogs in a match much like she previously did when she patrolled the position at Flintridge Prep.
