Cross Country


2023 Seniors


Kadie Norsworthy – I’ve run cross country for 2 years. While I enjoy running, I fell in love with the sport purely because of the relationships I’ve built with my teammates and coaches. So, I highly recommend joining the #WolfPack XC family and get some really good free food!

Jennyfer Gomez – I’ve been running cross country for 4 years. It’s a great sport to be a part of, and my teammates and coach make the experience even better. Yes, it can be tough but it is definitely worth it!

Cris “Rocky” Velasquez – I am a senior runner for Darbonnewoods Charter School. I have placed third at the state meet twice, 2020 and 2021. My all time PR is 16:34 for a 5K. I currently have a 3.82 GPA , I am a part of the Beta club, National honor society, and honor roll. I am interested in studying physical therapy or kinesiology in college. When I first started running I hated it and was considered slow, but with my drive to be the best athlete I could be and a devoted coach I was bound for success. Running became a part of me and something I look forward to every day. I earned the nickname “Rocky” for punching the air with my fist on the first day of practice freshman year.

Trent Futch – Been a part of DWCS cross country since 6th grade. I became a part of the WolfPack family my freshman year. Working hard and giving every run/workout a 100% is what led to my 17:27 PR for a 5K. I like running because it’s soothing. Come run for DWCS and become a part of the #WolfPack.

Coaches


Redd Jenkins
Head Coach

Coming from Ruston High School where I completed 4 years of cross country and Track running. I was a part of the 1st girls team to win a cross country and track championship for Ruston High School. With 2 indoor mile championships and 2 4×8 championships under my belt  and countless wins my love for running grew even more.
 
I continued to push myself and went on to earn a full track and field scholarship to Northwestern State University. Snagging Freshman of the year in college at the Southland Conference Championships, I completed 3 years of collegiate running for Northwestern before my injury ended my career my senior year.  
 
I graduated from Northwestern in 2011 earning a bachelors in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. I furthered my education at the University of Phoenix where I earned my master in education K-6th grade. 
 
I was welcomed to the “Woods” in January 2019 by Mr. Murry and Coach Sparks. They instantly pulled me in once cross country was spoken. I am completing my 3rd year as head cross country and track coach. We have come a VERY long way and I couldn’t be prouder of the “WolfPack” we have built and created. 
 
I am married to Coach Ron Jenkins who is also the assistant coach of cross country, varsity girls basketball and head coach of Jr high girls basketball. We have two children together. Aaiden (10) and Mila (8).
