Jersey high schools to resume steroid testing.

( all thanks to the Jersey Shore reality show 🙂 )

Steroid testing for New Jersey high school athletes will return for the 2010-11 school year, the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association announced Wednesday.

NJSIAA executive director Steve Timko said in June that steroid testing would be cut because the state government did provide any funds for it. But Timko said Wednesday the state did include funds in the budget it passed in July, so the testing is back.

The state and NJSIAA each contribute $50,000 to pay for the program.

The NJSIAA randomly will test 500 athletes who participate in state tournament games and matches this school year.
