Fairfield residents, from left, Ted Wallace, Danielle Wallace and Joel Price display their plaques after winning the co-ed division of the Iowa State Wallyball Tournament, which was held in March at the Eldridge Rec & Fitness Center in Eldridge. In the three-day tournament, the local trio finished atop a field that included teams from Iowa as well as Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. Ted Wallace said the sport of wallyball, which is a fast-paced indoor court sport in the same vein as volleyball, is growing in Fairfield. Wallace said he wants to bring several Fairfield teams to the competition next season in hopes of continuing on to the national-level competition.
