The UIL Anabolic Steroid Testing Report for the 2011-12 school year has been released by the UIL. The statistical report of the testing program that took place between September 2011 and May 2012 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 3,311 tests conducted, there were nine confirmed positive results and two protocol violations. One protocol violation resulted from a selected student that did not report for testing, and one was the result of a substituted specimen.

Of the 217 schools where tests were conducted, 3,087 boys were tested representing 11 sports, and 224 girls were tested representing 10 sports. The sports with the most student-athletes tested were football for males (1,366) and volleyball for females (30). 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 1,045 senior student-athletes tested, the most of any grade level.

The complete UIL Anabolic Steroid Testing Report is as follows:
