Light pole snaps at Shelton Stadium


BUDA – A light pole at Hays High School’s Bob Shelton Stadium snapped Friday night, landing on top of Oran Bales Gymnasium and puncturing a hole in the middle of the roof.

Hays CISD communications director Julie Jerome said the pole snapped at about 6 p.m. No one was injured.

The pole was one of four holding up the lights at the stadium.

All access to Shelton Stadium and Bales Gymnasium will be closed indefinitely. Emergency response teams will be at the stadium throughout the weekend to take down the remaining three poles.

The Hays junior varsity baseball game against Pflugerville Hendrickson, scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, has been cancelled.
