By Kevin Charles — A Houston high school is in trouble for letting some of its athletes know they were about to get tested for steroids. Houston ISD’s Pat Trahan says the staff at Sterling High School didn’t know they were breaking the University Interscholastic League’s rules. “There is a new administrator there,” Trahan explained. “We don’t believe that he had the proper training and awareness of the rules to have a full understanding of what the rules determine.” Sterling will receive a public reprimand and two years of probation for warning the athletes the tests were coming. Trahan says HISD will also educate test coordinators at the rest of its schools about the rules. Sterling administrators turned themselves in to the UIL when they realized they had broken the rules. Sterling’s probation means they will face a stiffer penalty if they break the rules again.
