Officials said the athlete passed out and was taken to a pediatric hospital. Before he fainted, the athlete told trainers he frequently overheats and had not eaten Monday. 

The athlete is expected to be okay. 

A heat advisory was put into affect for the area shortly before the athlete passed out.
