Many residents have been left without power since Monday after the storm toppled powerlines in the area.TUCSON, Ariz.

TUCSON, Ariz. (13 News) -Frustration continues to grow for many Foothill residents as they go on over 24 hours without power after Monday’s storm toppled powerlines and knocked out electricity for more than 20,000 Tucson Electric Power customers.
The record-breaking heat mixed with no air conditioning as many people upset.
“We haven’t had power since 4:30 yesterday. It is currently 92 degrees on one side of my house and 90 on the other. Both of my kids had to leave and spend the nights at friends’ houses,” said Micah Lemon, a Catalina Foothills resident.
Lemon said she and her elderly mother woke up feeling sick due to the heat in their home. It was difficult for them to go elsewhere because of their animals.
“We got three dogs at home that we can’t take anywhere because you can’t check into a hotel with three dogs,” said Lemon.
Earlier today, TEP set up ice stations which many foothill residents took advantage of. Yet, some say the ice may not be enough to keep their food fresh.
“We are all pretty much planning on emptying our fridges and our freezers at this point which is unfortunate. I did get some ice from TEP and took it over to the neighbors so they could keep their food frozen, but we can’t guarantee it, we are all thinking it is gone,” said Kathy Hollister, a Catalina Foothills resident.
Some residents said they already had to throw away food.
“We have had to throw away over two bags of stuff away already and now we have to go back and throw more stuff. We do not have enough coolers but lucky we have some friends that are going to bring some over,” said Lemon.
Hollister added that, at this point, she is more concerned about the well-being of her elderly neighbors.
“Across the street I have an elderly couple whose husband is wheelchair-bound. It is not easy to move him, and he relies on the electricity to lift him into his bed and to get into his chair, so it is creating a pretty big disadvantage for him,” said Hollister.
Hollister also said moving them to a cooler location would be difficult if the outage continues.
“It is very difficult to get him into any kind of vehicle. They don’t have a good transport systems for him so any time they have to move him is a major production,” said Hollister.
TEP will continue to work overnight to install new poles and lines. Some customers are not expected to have power restored until Wednesday night.
For residents looking to stay cool overnight, the American Red Cross has set up a cooling center at Catalina Magnet High School located at 3645 E. Pima St.
TEPs ice stations will reopen tomorrow at 8 a.m.

The AIA tennis season wrapped up at Paseo Racquet Center in Glendale on Saturday with the boys' and girls' team championships in Division I, II and III, along with individual and doubles titles. Scottsdale Desert Mountain, Tucson Catalina Foothills and Phoenix Country Day all showed why they have been among the top programs in Arizona in recent years. Here's a rundown:
The Wolves took home both the boys' and girls' Division I team tennis championships Saturday, with both teams clinching their titles after their singles flights were completed.
The No. 1 girls team swept their singles mathes against No. 3 Desert Vista 5-0. The team result was sealed in the battle of the No. 2s, when Desert Mountain sophomore Tessa Watchel won the final point against Desert Vista sophomore Natalie Visic, the Division I singles runner-up, to give Watchel her the second set victory 6-4 and the flight victory 2-0. That sealed Desert Mountain's third consecutive Division I championship. and third straight undefeated season.
“These girls have worked so hard,” said Wolves head coach Kim Dever. “They have just worked out hard in our tournaments and just brought it today. It was exciting to see every one of our courts fighting hard.”
The only team that managed to take a set off of Desert Mountain in the playoffs was No. 4 Hamilton in the semifinals, but the Wolves took care of them 5-2.
The Wolves' boys team was seeded No. 3, but won the boys team championship over No. 1 Brophy Prep, another Arizona high school tennis power. The Broncos entered the championship match having won seven of the last 10 Division I championships, their last title loss coming against Desert Mountain in 2021.
On Saturday, the championship came down to the battle of the No. 6 competitors, Desert Mountain senior Yuki Matsui versus Brophy junior Austin Kos, coming down to a tiebreaker. Matsui avenged his loss earlier in the season to Kos, 10-5, clinching Desert Mountain's second boys team tennis title in the past three seasons.
"I couldn't be prouder of these kids," said Desert Mountain boys head coach Jay Curtis. "I have three freshmen in this group doing this so it's even more impressive."
Catalina Foothills has been a dominant D-II program and showed again why Saturday, winning both the boys and girls championships again. The boys went into their match against No. 5 Flagstaff having won eight consecutive Division II championships. The girls went into their match against No. 2 AZ College Prep having won four straight.
The No. 1 girls conceded 10 sets combined in their first five singles matches Saturday, but sealed the title in the No. 4 matchup when senior Maria Aranguren swept AZ College Prep junior Yewon Kim 6-0 in their second set.
"I'm pretty proud of these girls," said Catalina Foothills head coach Daniel Root. "They had to live up to a stellar team that preceded them, and they just did a magnificent job."
The boys' team would soon follow suit, sweeping No. 5 Flagstaff in their singles flights 5-0 against giving No. 2 Catalina Foothills their ninth straight boys Division II title, which is now a state record.
"It's a legacy," said Catalina Foothills head coach Jeffry Bloomberg. "Go back 10 years ago when we started this run, and these kids fed into that, they know what the deal is and they know what the record is, and they just wanted to keep it going." The title is Bloomberg's seventh as the head coach.
In a faceoff of the No. 5 players, Catalina Foothills senior Suraj Shah defeated Flagstaff freshman August Fahy 7-5 in their second set, giving Shah the match victory and sealing the championship.
Last season, Phoenix Country Day took home both boys and girls team tennis trophies. To try and do it again in consecutive seasons is easier said than done, but that's what the Eagles did on Saturday, winning both the boys and girls team championships.
On the girls side, No. 5 Phoenix Country Day swept No. 3 Tucson Pusch Ridge 5-0 in the singles flights, making the Eagles back-to-back champions.
"We continue to strive for excellence," said Phoenix Country Day head coach Jerry Keever. "We work really hard to peak at the state tournament, and we had good competition and we persevered."
In the No 4 singles duel, Phoenix Country Day senior Elle Bartolino sealed the deal for the Eagles when she won her second set versus Pusch Ridge senior Madi Van Holsbeke 6-4. That gave Bartolino the match victory and the Eagles' fifth win of the singles flights.
After the girls played, the boys took the court. In the closest match of the day, No. 2 Phoenix Country Day was in a fight with No. 1 Thatcher.
After four singles flights, the score was knotted at 2-2. In the match of No. 3s, Phoenix Country Day sophomore Carter Kroeger won against Thatcher junior Blake Kartchner 10-8 in their third tiebreaker set to give the Eagles a 3-2 lead. In the final singles flight of the day and the closest match, Phoenix Country Day sophomore Linus Gino-Griffiths and Thatcher junior Gee Huish went back and forth in the third tiebreaker set, with no real separation from either player. It took 13 points, but Huish was able to even up the score once again in a marathon 13-11 victory in the third set, which meant for the first time all day, doubles would be played.
The two teams split two doubles matchups, with the No. 2 Phoenix Country Day team of Kroeger and senior Tyler Tam awith No. 3 Thatcher team of junior Brock Smith and senior Carter Bryce winning in their respective matchups. It came down to the No. 1 doubles flight. Thatcher had the early lead, having a 3-2 set lead. But the reigning Division III doubles champions of junior Jacques Sevrain and Gino-Griffiths went on a 5-1 run to give Phoenix Country Day their fifth point of the match and the much coveted three-peat.
"I felt fairly confident that we had two strong doubles teams," said Keever. "(The No. 1 team matchup) was close, it was very competitive, but they prevailed as doubles champions do."
Division I boys: Mountain Ridge junior Lincoln Baldonado def. Desert Mountain senior Trevor Rein (4-6, 6-4, 10-7)

In Thursday’s victory, Catalina Foothills overcame a 3-0 deficit by rallying for four runs in the second and third innings.
Dane White’s RBI single combined with an error allowed Catalina Foothills to cut the lead to 3-2 with two outs in the second.
Lucas Polec later walked with the bases loaded to tie the game.

A two-run single by Polec that included a throwing error allowing another run to score on the play increased the margin to 8-3.
Horizon rallied for runs in the fifth and seventh innings but pitching by Paden Good and Adams was sufficient to keep the lead.
Good scattered six hits in five innings with three strikeouts and no walks. Adams did not allow an earned run in his two innings.
Polec finished with three RBIs, Ganon Dwyer was 2 for 3 with two runs and a double and White was 1 for 2 with a run and RBI.

Catalina Foothills is knocking on the door again for a state championship.
Won’t someone please let them in?
The top-seeded Falcons (27-2-1) are 0-5 in championship games heading into Tuesday night’s 5A title game with No. 2 Queen Creek Casteel (26-6). The game at Tempe Diablo Stadium starts at 4 p.m.
Lance Robertson is back for another try with Catalina Foothills after coaching the Falcons to the 4A Division I championship game in 2010, when they lost to Scottsdale Saguaro.
He left the program following the 2012 and has coached at Pusch Ridge and Ironwood Ridge before returning to the Falcons this season. He has spent the last 15 years being the kinetic wellness instructor in the Catalina Foothills School District.
Robertson has senior leadership mixed with good young talent.
Senior left fielder Jaden Keenan leads the team with a .440 batting average followed by fellow seniors Anthony Diaz (center fielder at .370) and Troy Sanders (shortstop at .361).
Diaz has signed with Central Florida and Sanders is a son of Baltimore Orioles first-base coach Anthony Sanders, a Santa Rita alum. Sanders is headed to Grand Canyon.
Senior left-hander Ethan Bell is the team’s ace, pitching 67 2/3 innings this year with a 1.86 ERA. He is 9-0 with 58 strikeouts and 15 walks.
Sophomore first baseman/left-handed pitcher Ganon Dwyer has already committed to Arizona. He is second on the team in RBIs (24) and ERA (1.87).
Casteel has two Arizona commits as batterymates — Class of 2024 prospects Mason Russell, a left-hander, and Kade Thompson, a catcher.
Russell pitched a no-hitter in Casteel’s 5-0 win over Nogales in the semifinals last week. He struck out six and walked one. He faced 23 batters, two over the minimum.

The AIA boys high school tennis team championship tournament begins Wednesday in all three divisions and concludes May 6. The indivdual and doubles championships begin Friday and conclude May 1. Here is a breakdown of the divisions in the 16-team tournament:
No. 1 Brophy is the only undefeated team in D-I. The Broncos defeated every team in the top 10 of D-1 other than Tucson Rincon, who they did not meet in the regular season. They're also the defending champions and haven't lost a match since the 2021 season. Riding an outstanding 32-match winning streak since last year, the Broncos are clear favorites to win it all again.
The two teams best equipped to stop Brophy are No. 2 Hamilton and No. 3 Desert Mountain, both consistently competiive programs. Hamilton lost one match this season, which was to Brophy, but the Huskies have been great outside of that, rattling off eight straight wins since then. Desert Mountain gave Brophy their toughest contest this season, a 5-4 Broncos win that came down to the final doubles set. Despite losing two matches this season to the top two teams in 6A, the Wolves know what it takes to end Brophy's dominance, as they're the last school to defeat the Broncos, in the 2021 6A championship match.
Others to watch:
A major wildcard in this tournament is No. 6 Tucson Rincon. The Rangers are 13-1 and their only loss this season was against Division II dynasty Catalina Foothills. The Rangers are undefeated against 6A schools this season and could make a deep run if they're able to beat No. 11 Desert Vista in the opening round and potentially No. 3 Desert Mountain in the second round.
No. 9 Chaparral is another school that could give a higher-seeded team problems in the second round. The Firebirds were the 6A runner-up last season. A rematch with the Broncos is certainly possible if they're able to get past No. 8 Red Mountain in the first round.
No. 10 Mesa Mountain View is a team that could pull of an uset or two. The Toros are no strangers to underdog playoff wins, besting No. 4 Marana last season in the first round as a No. 13 seed. This time around, they just squeezed into the top 10 and get a first-round match against No. 7 Perry. Whoever advances from that match faces the Hamilton-Marana (No. 15) wnner.
See the full Division I bracket here.
Unlike Division I, Division II has multiple undefeated teams: No. 1 Estrella Foothills, No. 2 Catalina Foothills, No. 3 AZ College Prep and No. 4 Paradise Valley. Estrella Foothills of Goodyear, and Tucson Catalina Foothills have swept all but three of their opponents in matches this season. The schools met in the D-II championship last season, in which Catalina Foothills their eighth consecutive D-II championship. There's no reason why both can't reaturn for a title rematch this year.
But a few schools could have something to say about that. Chandler AZ College Prep and Paradise Valley will both look to shake up the top of Division II. AZ College Prep made the jump up to Division II after last season, which saw them make a run to the Division III championship match, where the Knights fell to Phoenix Country Day. The Knights are proving they belong in D-II, going undefeated in their first season at that level. If the Knights, which open against McClintock, make it all the way to the semifinals, they could face Catalina Foothills. Paradise Valley has the required postseason experience to go far in the tournament. The Trojans were the 2021 runner-up to Catalina Foothills.
Others to watch
No. 5 Flagstaff enters the tournament on a 12-match winning streak, having lost only once all season -- their season opener against No. 1 Estrella Foothills. The Eagles kept it closeer to the Wolves than any other team this season, building a 4-3 set lead before falling 4-5. If they can get past No. 12 ALA-Gilbert North and Paradise Valley in a potential second-round match, they could face Estrella Foothills in the semifinals.
No. 9 Sahuarita might be underrated. The Mustangs are coming into the tournament off a 14-win regular season. They won't have to go far for their first-round matchup against No. 8 Tucson Salpointe Catholic. If they can beat the Lancers, they likely will face No. 1 Estrella Foothills in the second round.
See the full Division II bracket here.
The clear two favorites in Division III are No. 1 Thatcher and No. 2 Phoenix Country Day, two teams that compete in different sections and didn't meet durng the regular season. Thatcher, located in southeast Arizona near Safford, is 14-0 and gained eight sweeps., as did Phoenix Country Day (10-0). PCD is eyeying a potential threepeat after winning the last two Division III titles. The teams met in the 2022 semifinals and beat them 5-2. A rematch, this time in the Division III championship, wouldn't be a surprise..
No. 3 Pusch Ridge and No. 4 Scottsdale Prep round out the top four. Both schools have only lost once this season, Pusch Ridge lost to Thatcher and Scottsdale Prep lost to Phoenix Country Day. In this tournament format, there's a good chance they both put up a good fight against the top two teams if they make it to the semifinals, as Pusch Ridge didn't face Phoenix Country Day this season and Scottsdale Prep didn't face Thatcher this season.
No. 5 Anthem Prep is the third undefeated team in Division III. The Eagles have only played nine matches this season, but have looked dominant, procuring six sweeps. If they defeat No. 12 Safford, they face the winner of Scottsdale Prep vs. No. 13 The Gregory School.
No. 7 Chandler Prep (10-2) had close losses against No. 4 Scottsdale Prep and No. 8 Gilbert Christian. Both losses were by a score of 4-5, They also sport wins over No. 9 Veritas Prep and No. 11 Gilbert Classical. The Titans get a first-round showdown with No. 10 Tanque Verde and if they're able to win against the Hawks, a probable second=round matchup with two-time defending Division III champions Phoenix Country Day awaits them.
