The long-awaited ribbon cutting for the new, state of the art Covelli Center took place on Tuesday evening as OSU athletic director Gene Smith and the Covelli family unveiled the high-tech competition venue that will house men’s and women’s volleyball and serve as the competition facility for men’s and women’s gymnastics, wrestling and fencing. Head coach Meredith Paulicivic was on hand Tuesday evening and spoke to the benefits the new facility will give to the student-athletes.
On Wednesday morning, rising junior Morgan Lowe gave a speech to the Buckeye Club on the exciting new features that will raise Ohio State’s competition level. The venue is truly awe-inspiring, and we can’t wait to compete in our first meet in front of our fans.
Women’s gymnastics will benefit from a dedicated locker room, training and treatment rooms. Included within the arena on the concourse level is the public space which includes administrative offices, arena box office, concession area and catering space.
