Steroid Testing Hits High School Campuses In Lubbock

Steroid testing has hit high school campuses in Lubbock. About 90 Lubbock High athletes were tested Thursday, one day after the same number was tested at Coronado.

A senate bill, passed by the Texas legislature last year, required the UIL to enact a statewide steroid testing program that would randomly test athletes in grades nine through 12 for anabolic steroids.

Lubbock High Assistant Principal of Student Affairs Rickey Woody says the testing sends a positive message. "with all the pressure on kids to perform and stuff today we want them to be safe and by doing this we're giving kids a message saying your safety is important." said Woody  

If an athlete tests positive, they will be suspended for 30 days or until a negative result is received from another test.
