Amy Behrman now heads the women’s tennis program at The College of Wooster after serving as an assistant for both the men’s and women’s teams during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years.
Behrman has taken great strides in upgrading the Fighting Scots’ program, helping them to 63 wins while recruiting new talent, aided by the school’s new $30 million Scot Center that includes four indoor tennis courts for practice and match play.
Berhman's relentless efforts have started to pay off as Wooster finished with a .500 record (9-9) during the 2016-17 season, marking the highest winning percentage for the program since the 2003-04 season, and followed that up with a 15-5 record for the 2017-18 season. Wooster's 15 wins marked the second-most in program history and were one shy of the 1997 team's program record.
Prior to coming to Wooster, Behrman was the interim head women’s coach at NCAA Div. I Ball State University near her hometown of Daleville, Ind., guiding the Cardinals to eight victories as well as the quarterfinals of the 2010 Mid-American Conference Tournament. She also was the head tennis coach at Yorktown High School in Yorktown, Ind., in the fall of 2009, while serving as a tennis instructor at the Muncie Northwest YMCA for two years.
A collegiate player at Catawba College in Salisbury, N.C., Behrman earned all-conference honors three times with the Lady Indians, including first-team status as a sophomore and junior. A team co-captain twice, she recorded 46 doubles wins during her career, tied for the third-most in school history upon graduation.
Behrman completed her bachelor’s degree at Catawba in 2004, while double-majoring in physical education and sports/recreation management with a coaching minor. Also during that time, she was the tennis coordinator at the Asheboro Parks and Recreation Department.
