Steroid Testing Hits High School Campuses In Lubbock

Posted:

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.
