Model coach Reinhardt Strijdom said he is happy with the way his team finished out the first half of the season.

“I thought it was a real good buildup. We’ve been steadily improving which is all you’re looking for,” Strijdom said. “We’re a little bit ahead of what I thought we would be. But we have a lot of work to do now over the Christmas break. I think there will be a big difference in the team after we get back.”
