Grace Ariola on UT Women’s Big 12 Prep: How Rested Are They? (Video)


Reported by Robert Gibbs.


  1. Texas – 1:36.86
  2. Iowa State – 1:39.83
  3. Kansas – 1:40.05

The Longhorns had four solid splits as they won by almost three seconds over Iowa State. Claire Adams(24.25), Kennedy Lohman (27.44), Remedy Rule (23.47) and Grace Ariola (21.70) combined for a 1:36.86. That’s 0.67 slower than they were earlier in the season, but that could be a positive sign for their NCAA performance next month, as in previous years they’ve been known to peak more in February than in March.

Given that there is no competition for Texas at Big 12’s the only reason for them to rest would be if they were on the bubble of qualifying.

No, No, No. You don’t get it. If Texas were in the ACC/SEC they would be forced to taper for ACC/SEC’s so that they could try to win the conference, but then finish 10 spots lower at NCAA.

Cause that’s the logical thing to do, right?

Ahhhh the old “we aren’t rested” story! March will decide which team really wasn’t that rested for their conference meet.

She’s a freshman she doesn’t know any better. Next year she will dodge the question or answer it without spilling the beans. Someone needs to tell her the first rule of fight club…..

Interesting, I don’t see the problem in being honest about your pre meet process for any meet.

Yes, it’s a slippery slope in Austin to going from “we’re not rested” to “I did a world-beating time in practice.”

The times are 100% consistent with what they’ve done in season during duels (e.g. 200 medley relay splits), therefore she’s being truthful it appears. Doesn’t take very long to do simple research @superfan.
