Volleyball Club Edit

The Boys' Volleyball Club has superior defense and coordination. Wakutani South's solid receiving and connection help it bring out its A-game and counter effortlessly. Keishin Ukai has compared its receiving skills to Nekoma High's. Wakutani South had been one of the top four powerhouses in the Miyagi Prefecture until its recent loss to Karasuno High.


"Show Your Tenacity"

The team captain Takeru Nakashima idolizes the Small Giant, who had played in the strongest team Karasuno'd ever had, and developed his own fighting style based off of the ace's. Takeru often hits the ball to his opponents' fingers to make it ricochet off, either giving his team a chance to change its attack or causing the ball to go out so his team can get a point. This technique usually gives opposing teams a lot of trouble, and it's been said that since Takeru had become a third year, Wakutani South's strength has increased exponentially, making the current team one of the most powerful in the school's history.

During the Spring High, Wakutani South won easily in its first match-up and sealed fates with Karasuno. However, after a neck-to-neck battle, Karasuno won and Wakutani South was eliminated in the quarterfinals, only making the Top 8.
