UIL finds no steroid violations in latest test

Texas found no cheaters in the latest round of steroids tests of high school athletes.
The University Interscholastic League on Thursday released
results of tests for the spring semester of the 2009-2010 school
year. Of the 3,308 boys and girls tested last semester, all of the
student athletes were clean.
About 50,000 tests since February 2008 have found only about 20
confirmed cases of steroid use.
The program has been shrinking since lawmakers created it in
2007 with a $3 million annual budget. In May 2009, when the small
number of positive tests caused some to question whether testing
should be stopped, state lawmakers cut the program to $1 million
annually.
Budgets cuts have prompted more cuts. Last May, state officials
reduced the program budget to $750,000.
