There will be no premiers in the 50th season of Wagga Softball.
There was just two weeks left in the season when Softball NSW made the call to stop all competition due to the coronavirus threat on Wednesday.
Days out from the preliminary final, Wagga Softball officials meet to determine the fate of the season and elected for a no result season across all grades, in seniors and juniors.
Vice president Deanna McNaughton revealed they went against usual rules due to the unprecedented nature of the situation.
"Our actual rules do state that if a grand final can't be played then it reverts back to the ladder and the first team into the grand final," McNaughton said.
"The problem is we have to look at the whole competition, not just A grade women."
South Wagga Warriors finished on top of the ladder in the A grade women's competition before they were beaten by Saints in the first week of finals.
They were set to face Turvey Park Blue for the last remaining place in the decider on Saturday.
With plans to split the men's competition into A grade and B grade for finals, as well as some juniors, the executive thought having no results was a fairer approach.
"It's based on the information from Softball NSW, and is what some other associations have done as well," McNaughton said.
"They've gone in this situation possibly the best thing is to say no result.
"It is disappointing for some people as there is no winner but we really chose this as the decision that is far across the association and it also puts the focus a little bit on why do we do sport.
"When you play there has to be a winner and a loser but sometimes you need to remember that why you play is to be part of the community, to be social, fit, healthy and active and we really wanted to promote that message."
Meanwhile dinner to celebrate 50 years of softball in Wagga has been called off until August but the association will still have a presentation morning at French Fields on Saturday with the association still looking to acknowledge individual achievements.
