2013-2014 UIL Anabolic Steroid Testing Report
The UIL Anabolic Steroid Testing Report for the 2013-14 school year has been released by the UIL. The statistical report of the testing program that took place between September 2013 and May 2014 includes information such as the total number of tests conducted, the number of positive results and the breakdown of student-athletes tested by sport and gender.
Of the 2,633 tests conducted, there were two (2) confirmed positive results, ten (10) inconclusive endogenous records, and seven (7) protocol violations, for an unexcused absence at the time the test was administered. An inconclusive endogenous record denotes an elevated testosterone amount in the body with an inability to determine if the amount was naturally or unnaturally produced.
Of the 172 schools where tests were conducted, 2,405 boys and 228 girls were tested representing 10 sports for each gender. The sports with the most student-athletes tested were football for males (1,112) and volleyball for females (47). The total number of student-athletes tested for each sport includes multiple sport participants. Therefore, the individual sport numbers will differ from the total number of athletes tested. Overall, there were 769 senior student-athletes tested, the most of any grade level.

A protocol positive results when a student-athlete violates UIL steroid-testing protocol. Both protocol violations resulted from the selected students having unexcused absences at the time the test was administered. An inconclusive endogenous record denotes an elevated testosterone amount in the body with an inability to determine if the amount was naturally or unnaturally produced.
