FHSU Band Members Suffer In Heat

KSAL StaffAugust 30, 2013

Four members of the Fort Hays State University marching band were taken to a hospital because of the heat.

Lane Weaver, director of marching bands at FHSU, says four of his students were taken to the hospital with symptoms of heat-related illness Thursday during a march from campus to downtown Hays in 100-degree weather.

Weaver says band member were dressed in T-shirts and shorts or jeans, and water was available.

The four taken to Hays Medical Center as a precaution were all dismissed from the hospital that night.

Weaver says the incident has led him to think about having the band wear T-shirts and khakis instead of their full uniforms for the upcoming football game against Emporia State.
