Sarukawa Tech High (Japanese: 早流川 (さるかわ) 工業 (こうぎょう) 高校 (こうこう) Sarukawa Kōgyō Kōkō) is a high school in the Ishikawa Prefecture.

Volleyball Club Edit

The boys' Volleyball Club has a banner that reads "Rising Up Everytime" in accordance to their persistent play style.[1] Under the guidance of their coach, Shishio, the team favors a play style of pressuring their opponents little by little. The team's priority is not making perfect plays and overwhelming their opponents directly. Instead, they are willing to make consistent and average plays if it means it will benefit them in the long run. Daishō from Nohebi has noted Sarukawa as a team showing great tenacity and courage for employing an unconventional strategy of targeting the setter.[2]

The team is also noted to have a strong defense. This is most likely the result of their Coach Shishio being a previous student of Nekomata.
