I suspect the older girl is more attracted by the ingredients and quality of ingredients in the Wellness vs. Science Diet and it has little to do with what age range it is.
If Sally is having a difficult transition to wet, you can try the Wellness Core dry. It's grain-free.
And now for my regular mantra: kitten food is a marketing gimmick to part you with more of your hard earned pennies. Think about it for a moment - does Momma Cat select the "kitten option" from whatever prey is available to her? Nope. Momma Cat feeds kittens from what's out there. Kittens need small meals often due to the size of their tummies, but they don't need special meals.
The grain-free Wellness line is a good feline food. Both your cats would benefit from it but parting with extra money for the kitten-range option isn't going to add an extra benefit.
