Texas' Steroid Testing Program Official Results

Two unidentified Texas high school athletes were caught taking unauthorized substances in the nation's largest steroids testing program.

Results were released today by the University Interscholastic League. The two-year, six million dollar program approved by the 2007 Legislature led to the screening of more than 10,000 students.

The Associated Press reports athletes who were tested played sports ranging from football to women's golf. The two students who tested positive weren't identified by name, school or sport. Documents obtained by AP show that a senior tested positive for the anabolic steroid boldenone. A 10th grader was found using a steroid called methylandrostandiol.

The UIL says four tests came back unresolved. Three students refused to be tested. One athlete left the testing area without cause or approval, and 18 missed the mandatory testing without an excused absence. Random testing resumes in the fall.
