Steroid testing for high school players is backThe New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association announced on Wednesday that steroid testing for New Jersey high school athletes will return for 2010-11.

Bob Baly, NJSIAA assistant director, said 490 athletes were tested in 2009-10 and all of them tested negative for performance enhancing drugs.

Baly said that the fact that athletes are aware that any of them can be tested is certainly a deterrent for making use of performance enhancing drugs.
