CARDIFF, UNITED KINGDOM. 13 Feb 2020. Mountain Ash Comprehensive School were crowned champions of the 2020 RCT Schools Netball tournament after beating Treorchy Comprehensive School 11-8 after extra-time in the final today. The tournament was a 13-team event at the House of Sport in Cardiff. Mountain Ash went through Pool A unbeaten and then overcame Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda, 8-7, in a tense semi-final. The year 11 girls won the tournament for the first time to carry off the trophy and £250 prize money – sponsored by Netball Universe. Mountain Ash coach Lynsey Morgan said the team will be using the prize money to buy netball dresses, which the girls are excited about as they were one of the only teams without dresses in the tournament.
