Amy Behrman, a 2004 graduate of Catawba College, has been named Ball State University's interim women's tennis coach, according to Ball State director of intercollegiate athletics Tom Collins.
Behrman, who played four years of tennis at Muncie Burris High School before competing at Catawba College, was the head tennis coach at Yorktown High School last fall. Prior to becoming the head coach at Yorktown, she served as a voluntary assistant for the boys and girls tennis teams since 2004. Behrman has also worked as a tennis instructor at the Muncie Northwest YMCA for the past two years.
At Catawba, Behrman was co-captain of her team as a sophomore and junior and was the team's Most Valuable Player as a freshman.
After completing her collegiate career and earning a double major in physical education and recreation with a minor in coaching, Behrman served as a child care specialist at Muncie's Youth Opportunity Center until August of 2007. From 2006-09, Behrman was the assistant girls varsity soccer coach and head junior varsity coach for the Yorktown Tigers.
Behrman, who graduated with a 3.0 grade-point average on Catawba's 4.0 scale, served an internship as the tennis coordinator with the Asheboro Parks and Recreation Department while an undergraduate student. In addition to playing tennis at Burris, she played three seasons of varsity basketball and two years of varsity soccer for the Owls.
Ball State's women's tennis team will host Dayton Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Muncie Northwest YMCA. The event is free admission and open to the public.
