WLU football players test clean in drug test

February 25, 2011

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport has confirmed that all 67 Wilfrid Laurier University football players who took part in an unannounced drug test in January have tested clean. One sample returned a positive finding for a prohibited substance, but a medical review verified the finding was related to an acceptable medical prescription. WLU's athletic director says the university is pleased the tests have "confirmed that our student-athletes are making good decisions and playing drug-free." Canadian Interuniversity Sport has vowed to increase testing efforts following last year's doping scandal at the University of Waterloo, which led to a one-year suspension of the school's football team.
