The Alabama High School Athletic Association has postponed all athletic events in the state, includes area softball tournaments.
Local teams will now have to wait nearly a week to begin the post-season.
Dothan High School Softball Coach Patricia Ball says, "We just have to know that they had to make a decision based on what's going on in North Alabama for the best of our students. And as soon as they give us the o.k., then we'll get back on the field and get going with the playoffs."
The AHSAA hopes to have competition resume on Tuesday
