Texas’ Tasija Karosas completed a successful sweep of the backstroke titles at the 2017 Big 12 Swimming and Diving Championships, winning gold in a Big 12 Meet Record time of 1:51.11. With that, she clipped her former Meet Record of 1:51.21 from last season’s Big 12 meet. She was also just over a half second off of her own Big 12 Conference Record, which stands at a 1:50.
Karosas got her hand on the wall just ahead of teammate Claire Adams, who was also under the previous Meet Record with a quick 1:51.16. Adams tried to run her down with a 27.90 on the final 50, but Karosas held her off by 5 hundredths.
