WATTS opens track to public

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – For the first time since it opened, the Watson and Tressel Training Site at Youngstown State University has opened its doors to the public.

The two-week period for public use is serving as a “preview” of what they will be offering during the winter months. Matt Rollins, the facility’s coordinator said the WATTS has not seen a lot of activity this time because it has been nice outside, but they plan on opening it to the public next October too because northeast Ohio weather can be unpredictable.

He said when open track is offered in the winter, the WATTS is packed.

“We get a couple hundred people in here. We get a lot of local high school track teams that come in and use the facility,” Rollins said.

Open track nights run through this Thursday and lasts from 6 to 8 p.m. The WATTS will reopen for public use in January for 10 weeks.
