After randomly testing more than 10,000 Texas high school athletes for steroid use, just four students tested positive while 22 others were suspended from playing for a month for avoiding their testing appointments, according to a University Interscholastic League report. Critics say the results show the $6 million testing program is a "colossal waste of taxpayer money," while backers say the low positive-rate indicates an "incredible success" for preventing most teens from using steroids.
