It was an overcast afternoon last Monday as the Levy County Cross Country Race got underway in Williston. A few sprinkles of rain fell as the race began.
Team members from Levy County schools—boys and girls from high schools and middle schools—lined up for the start of the race. Participants were from Bronson, Cedar Key, Chiefland High School and Chiefland Middle School, Williston and Yankeetown.
The competitors exploded from the starting line as the gun went off.
