Daniel Sainz indicated he is stepping down at Catalina Foothills after three seasons because of the time constraints of serving in the United States Air Force in addition to be a varsity football head coach.

Sainz, 32, coached the Falcons to a 16-14 record in his three seasons. The Falcons had a winning record of 6-4 in his first two seasons.

He spends his days with the Air National Guard.

“Being a member of the U.S. Air Force, my commitment to my country is conflicting with my ability to properly lead a program the way the kids deserve to be successful, and at this time, it’s best for me to step away,” Sainz mentioned in a text message. “The Foothills community has been nothing but incredible and I can’t thank the administration enough for taking a chance on me and allowing me to lead their program these three seasons.

“I loved every moment and I hope I made a positive impact on every player who entered my program. Go Falcons!”

The possibility exists Sainz could return in the fall with less time demands as an assistant coach at a local school.

Sainz was an offensive line coach at Sahuaro High School under Scott McKee for nine seasons before becoming the head coach at Catalina Foothills in April 2021.

He was a senior center listed at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds at Santa Rita when Jeff Scurran coached the Eagles to the state championship game in 2008.

Sainz’s offensive lines at Sahuaro were productive in terms of helping to generate a very potent running game. In the Cougars’ 2019 season, they rushed for 3,310 yards and three of their running backs gained at least 700 yards.

Before Sainz became the offensive line coach, he served one season as an apprentice on McKee’s staff.

Sainz’s departure creates the 11th coaching change in Southern Arizona after the conclusion of last season.

Catalina Foothills housing near Tucson OK'd despite concern over wildlife habitat

Catalina Foothills, an unincorporated area north of Tucson, is getting much-needed housing, despite neighbors’ concerns over traffic safety and potential destruction of critical wildlife habitat.

The Tucson area has a severe housing gap, with not enough affordable rentals or single-family houses.

A California-based developer, UIP Quail Canyon LLC, wants to build more than 300 units of housing in the highly sought-after area. Catalina Foothills is known for beautiful mountain views, upscale restaurants, expansive desert landscape and large lots, and is a popular area to live.

On July 11, the developer requested the Pima County Board of Supervisors approve its request to rezone 53 acres of land to allow for the construction of single- and multifamily homes.

The company proposed building a three-story, seven-building, 210-unit apartment complex on the north end of the property and 116 two-story single-family homes on the south end. Of the land to be developed, 22 acres are classified as a riparian area and will remain undisturbed except for the construction of a bridge, according to Pima County staff.

The land is on the former Quail Canyon Golf Course that opened in the 1960s and closed five years ago, located near the intersection of Oracle Road and Rudasill Road and intersected by the Pima Wash.

The Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to approve the rezoning, with Supervisor Adelita Grijalva voting against.

Grijalva reiterated many concerns voiced by community members, from the impact on wildlife to emergency access on the roads, and wondered if the company would continue to work with the neighborhood after the board's approval.

“Quail Canyon is the wrong place for a high-density project. … I continue to have concerns about how the community input is going to happen,” Grijalva said.

District 1 Supervisor Rex Scott, whose district includes the area, supported the proposal. While the housing is market rate, and not considered affordable housing, it will still add houses to the market, he said.

He called the project an “appropriate infill development” partly for its proximity to Oracle Road, a major north-south corridor, and its location near retail stores, employment and services. It also would add to the county’s housing stock, he said.

Scott said the company worked with the Coalition for Sonoran Desert Protection, which supports the project, to protect the riparian area.

Transportation, flood control managers support the project

Despite residents’ concerns about road safety on Rudasill Road, which included blind spots, dangerous curves and steep hills, the county transportation department said there are no transportation concerns. Oracle and Rudasill are under capacity, according to a staff report.

The Pima County Regional Flood Control District also supported the project, noting that the development does not disturb intact riparian habitat and exceeds flood mitigation standards.

“The development, as proposed, meets and exceeds federal, state, and local flood mitigation standards for this type of development, and can be constructed such that it is at minimal risk of flood damage and that it does not cause an adverse impact to others,” the district stated in a June 15 memo.

The developer also committed to implementing ways to mitigate impacts on wildlife, including using low-level pedestrian lighting, maximizing rain harvesting, implementing renewable energy sources, using gabions to protect the banks of the Pima Wash and revegetating the wash.

The developer said it also would restore areas of the Pima Wash previously disturbed by the golf course.

The project is leaving much of the wildlife area untouched and preserving half of the 62 saguaros. But 5 acres of riparian habitat will be disturbed for parking and driveway circulation, according to a county staff report.

Residents implore board to deny the rezoning

Many area residents spoke out against the development, noting its location in a riparian habitat and fears that nearby roads could not handle more traffic.

The county received 730 written comments in opposition to the rezoning request, according to a June 16 memo.

At the July 11 public hearing, many residents in the area spoke about their concerns about the riparian habitat.

“This development turns a critical wildlife corridor into a terror zone for wildlife,” Joan Scott said. She noted the development would impact the resilience of the wildlife area, and additional residents would mean additional disturbance near a critical wildlife corridor.

Others noted the already busy streets would become more congested with additional residents nearby.

However, citing Tucson’s housing crisis, some residents spoke in support.

“I am here to speak for the hundreds of people who would benefit from this development plan who are struggling during this affordable housing crisis,” Miranda Lopez said. “I believe this project will help address our region-wide housing shortage and especially our need for infill development near existing jobs, schools and infrastructure.”

Catalina Foothills falls to Queen Creek Casteel 15-8 in 5A state baseball championship

TEMPE — Catalina Foothills’ quest for the program’s first-ever baseball state championship fell short Tuesday when the top-seeded Falcons fell to second-seeded Queen Creek Casteel 15-8 in the Class 5A title game at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

The Colts had 19 hits en route to their banner victory over Catalina Foothills, which finished its season 27-3-1.

“It’s great just being a part of this season,” Catalina Foothills coach Lance Robertson said. “I wasn’t here last year, so being a part of this season, I just tried to get out of the way. I told them how much we love them and care about them.

“It’s a great season. Just one game short. That’s what it is.”

Catalina Foothills (27-3-1) senior ace Ethan Bell, who had a 1.86 ERA entering Tuesday, allowed seven runs on 14 hits and couldn’t hold an early Falcons lead.

“He threw well,” Robertson said. “Sometimes you just get those seeing-eye singles, things happen and there’s a mental mistake here and there. He threw great for us all year. You can’t take anything away from him. He was good today. Just ran out of gas in the end.”

The Falcons scored five runs in the second inning. Catalina Foothills catcher Kincaid Bergthold slapped a leadoff single into left field, then three straight walks scored the first run. Then a wild pitch, a walk and a hit-by-pitch, followed by a blooper into right by shortstop and future Grand Canyon Lope Troy Sanders, scored the final four runs of the inning. Casteel junior pitcher Mason Russell, who threw a no-hitter against Nogales in the semifinals, ended his start allowing five runs and four walks. He was replaced by Nick Dale.

“We knocked out probably the best pitcher in the state, in the first couple innings,” said Catalina Foothills standout sophomore Ganon Dwyer, who, like Russell, is committed to Arizona.

With Catalina Foothills leading 5-4 in the bottom of the third inning, Dwyer blasted a two-run home run — his fourth of the season — over the right field wall to extend the advantage to 7-4.

“It felt good,” Dwyer said. “Especially after that first at-bat when I got diced. Three straight strikes; I looked stupid. I got a pitch I could handle, and it was probably one of the hardest balls I hit. It felt good rounding those bases.”

The game turned in the fourth inning. Key hits included Kyler Anderson’s triple, UA commit Kade Thompson’s double and an RBI from another UA commit, Tyler Russell. The Colts scored eight runs in the inning to take a 12-7 lead. Bell was pulled after 3⅔ innings. The Colts had 15 hits at that point.

“We just couldn’t get out of it,” Robertson said. “Don’t take anything away from them, they were just pounding the ball that inning and finding some barrels. You let those type of great-hitting teams get a couple extra outs, they’re going to hurt you, and they got us pretty good.”

The title game was delayed just over an hour because of lightning in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Robertson thought the lighting delay “would’ve been a little bit of an advantage for us.” Once play resumed, Sanders’ deep hit to left field scored one run, but the Falcons never pulled within striking distance and Casteel tacked on three more runs after the weather delay.

“With the shock and awe of that eight-run inning, we thought, ‘OK, let our guys reset,’ because, gosh, you could feel we were a little flat,” Robertson said. “It just didn’t work out for us.”

Despite the loss, Dwyer said this year was “one of the best seasons in Foothills history.”

“I’m so happy to be a part of it as a sophomore, especially as a contributor tonight,” he said. “I hit the ball well, but there was nothing else we could’ve done.

“Casteel deserves it.”

No. 1 Catalina Foothills went from being sent to the 5A elimination bracket last week by No. 4 Scottsdale Horizon to winning three straight games, including two over the Huskies, to reach the championship game against No. 2 Queen Creek Casteel.

The championship game between the Falcons (27-2-1) and Casteel (26-6) is scheduled to be played at Diablo Stadium in Tempe on Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Catalina Foothills beat Horizon by identical 8-5 scores on Wednesday and Thursday nights at HoHoKam Park in Mesa. The Falcons were sent to the elimination bracket last week after losing 8-4 to the Huskies.

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 wild pitch and another walk with the bases loaded issued to Matt Adams allowed two more runs to score to build the lead to 5-3.

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.

NOTES

— Catalina Foothills has reached the state championship game five times (2002, 2004, 2005, 2010 and 2018) but has yet to win a title.

Lance Robertson, who coached the Falcons to their state championship appearance in 2010, is in his first year back with the program after coaching at Pusch Ridge and Ironwood Ridge.

— The game between Catalina Foothills and Casteel will feature three Arizona commits — Casteel junior left-hander Mason Russell and junior catcher Kade Thompson and Catalina Foothills sophomore first baseman Ganon Dwyer.
