New law in Illinois means steroid tests for high school student-athletes

High school student-athletes will be subject to random testing for steroids and other banned performance-enhancing substances throughout the school year under a new law that Gov. Pat Quinn signed on Friday.

While the Illinois High School Association already conducts such testing during state championship competitions, the new law spells out that at least 1,000 student-athletes will be checked during their sports’ playing seasons.
