The Ford City/Kittanning rivalry will be a double-dip next season in girls basketball.

The Sabers and Wildcats were placed together in Section 1-AAA in the WPIAL's new winter sports alignments released on Tuesday for 2014-15 and 2015-16.

The rivals will be joined in the section by Deer Lakes, Hampton, Highlands, Mars and Valley, while Freeport drops from Class AAA to Class AA.

Ford City and Kittanning are still scheduled to merge into the new Armstrong High School in 2015, and no plan has been announced for how the WPIAL will reshuffle its sections for that move.

Freeport's girls team drops into Section 2-AA, a reconfigured group that also houses Apollo-Ridge, Burrell, East Allegheny, Greensburg Central Catholic, Shady Side Academy, South Allegheny and West Shamokin. Leechburg drops from Class AA to Section 2-A with North Catholic, Eden Christian, Riverview, Springdale, St. Joseph and Vincentian.

In the boys alignment, Kittanning loses its Allegheny County opponents by being moved to Section 3-AAA. In that section, the Wildcats will face Derry, Greensburg Salem, Indiana, Mt. Pleasant, Southmoreland, Yough and West Shamokin, which moves into Class AAA for the first time. Freeport remains in Section 1-AAA.

Section 2-AA features some strong programs filling up the group that features Ford City and Apollo-Ridge. Also in the section are East Allegheny, Greensburg Central Catholic, Shady Side Academy, South Allegheny and Wilkinsburg.

Leechburg's boys move to Section 2-A, a group that has just one change — Aquinas Academy instead of Eden Christian — from the girls section of the same name.
