In ordering the teachers at troubled Kenwood High School to reapply for their jobs, Baltimore County education officials obviously are looking over their shoulders at a possible state takeover of the east county school.Kenwood bears a number of unhappy distinctions that, all told, make it the jurisdiction's lowest-performing school by Maryland Department of Education standards. Attendance falls well short of even the satisfactory level. Last year's ninth-graders did poorly on tests of basic academic functions, while 11th-graders fared acceptably only in reading and writing.

Injury-riddled Kenwood limped into last night's match at eighth-ranked Baltimore County rival Dulaney having suffered its first loss of the year and minus two key starters.But the Lions (10-1) showed no sympathy in a 50-21 shellacking of the 15th-ranked Bluebirds (9-2) that lasted scarcely an hour.First-period falls came from Mike Hwang (103 pounds), Billy Myers (135, 12-2) and Justin Tagg (171), with a 15-0 technical fall from Pat Kopalchick (145, 16-2). Hwang took just 35 seconds, Myers 1:28, and Tagg, 1:41.

The Kenwood track and field team is on the rise, thanks to the performances of Travis Jenkins, his teammates and coach Mark Planamente, who has directed the program for the last two seasons. Saturday, the Blue Birds finished in the top 10 in the Pikesville Track Classic, a 40-team meet that is one of the biggest outside of the state meet. Jenkins, a senior, won the long jump (22 feet, 4 inches) and high jump (6-4) in state-best leaps . That performance followed a four-team county meet against Parkville, Loch Raven and Perry Hall in which Jenkins also won the long jump (20-9 1/2)

Two weeks after the announcement that the Norplant contraceptive would be made available to teen-age girls in Baltimore City, a group of Baltimore County educators, business leaders and government officials unveiled plans to open a day care center for Kenwood High School students with children. The center will open next month at the Essex school and eventually serve as many as 12 children up to 2 1/2 years old.Both the city and county stories should serve to remind us that it's not enough any more to register shock and sadness at "babies having babies," especially in the Baltimore area, a nationally recognized hotbed of teen pregnancy.
