team which will compete In upcoming tournaments Drug testing prep athletes could come back to haunt Thomas Godley Its a sad sign of the times when public schools have the blessing of the nations highest court to randomly test athletes for drug use Though the testing probably is not going to happen any time soon in Texas high schools the mere idea of singling out kids who sign up for sports leads us to conclude that drugs and athletics have something in common My first suspicion when the Supreme Court announced its decision this week centered around an attack on drugs that would give athletes the edge during competition The prime suspects were steroids Nobody likes cheaters and we all know players who use steroids have all kinds of unfair advantages Random drug tests would make a kid think twice about getting bulked up with chemicals If it would keep all things equal between for example runners at a high school track meet or save a young athlete from ruining his body then the new policy would have a few merits Beyond those drugs that enhance performance though silly to think thai kids would mix drugs and sports because most drugs at least the most prevalent ones on the high school level tend to make a player less sharp in a competitive situation But that doesnt seem to be the underlying reason behind the drug testing issue The justice who wrote for the majority explained that a student who tries out for the local school team is willing to accept invasion of privacy After all the athlete showers with other kids and changes in the locker room he wrote Along with that kids in school are under the custody of school officials and are not expected to receive the same rights as adults That reasoning isnt exactly convincing What it says to me is that a student who wants to be a part of an extra curricula activity that promotes teamwork physical conditioning and responsibility has to pay a price to do so Down the road if schools do decide to make use of the courts decision plenty of young men and women will choose to stay away from sports to avoid losing some basic rights Instead they might join band or maybe the drill team Which brings us to another question of why other student groups arent part of the drug testing campaign Are athletes the sole users of drugs Other kids might forget school groups altogether and simply join a gang Ironically some might even get mixed up with the wrong group of kids who introduce them drugs The justices must not have looked that far into the future when making their new ruling Worldclass facility will open courts to programs By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Newcombe Tennis Ranch is known to many in our area as training grounds for some of the worlds top junior tennis players The international image is
