In brief: Sure.

Sunstroke occurs when you get dehydrated and run out of sweat, so that your body's thermostat can no longer keep your body cool.
Your body relies on water evaporation to stay cool. You can get sunstroke anytime you fail to drink enough fluids to replace what you sweat out, regardless of what you did the day before.
