New PIAA cutoffs change local sports landscape

The PIAA released statewide school enrollment numbers and classification cutoffs for its next two-year alignment cycle Monday, and the Alle-Kiski Valley's basketball scene shifted considerably.

On the boys side, Burrell and Deer Lakes will move up a class to AAA. Riverview and Springdale will drop down a level to Class A for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 school years.

On the girls side, Ford City and Deer Lakes are headed up to Class AAA. Leechburg, Riverview and Springdale go down to Class A and Freeport drops to Class AA.

Other changes included Apollo-Ridge's football team returning to Class AA, and Highlands coming down to Class AA.

Also, Deer Lakes and Freeport's baseball teams move up to Class AAA., Kittanning's and Valley's softball teams slide down to Class AA.

In girls soccer, Kittanning will debut as a Class AAA team because of its co-op arrangement with both Ford City and West Shamokin.
