* Brandy Wood of the North Baltimore Aquatic Club has signed a national letter of intent to swim for the University of Florida next season. She follows 1984 Olympic champion Theresa Andrews of Annapolis and three-time national champion Julie Gorman of Baltimore to the school.
Wood, a National Honors Society member at Dulaney High, has clocked personal bests of 4:21.1 in the 400-yard individual medley and 2:21.3 in the 200 breaststroke that would have placed her third and sixth, respectively, in this year's Southeastern Conference championship meet. The Lady Gators won their sixth straight SEC title and were third in the NCAA Championships last month.
Wood, trained by NBAC coach Murray Stephens, will compete in the 400-meter IM for the United States in the Pan American Games in Havana in August.
* Kurt Kendall, with a record-setting swimming career at the University of Maryland and an academic record to match, was named the recipient of the second annual Col. Thomas M. Fields Award, given by the Maryland Educational Foundation.
A senior chemistry student from Naples, Fla., Kendall will graduate with honors this May. A three-time NCAA Academic All-American, Kendall also has received the Bob James Postgraduate Scholarship from the Atlantic Coast Conference.
