Eric Behrenshausen enters his third year on the Spartan coaching staff for the 2016-17 academic year.
Behrenshausen comes to York after spending over 25 years in the high school softball coaching ranks. He spent most of his tenure as the head varsity softball coach at Carlisle High School where his teams competed in the highly-competitive Mid-Penn Commonwealth Division against the top talent in the midstate region. While at Carlisle, Behrenshausen was a three-time Carlisle Sentinel Softball Coach of the Year recipient. He led the Thundering Herd to the program's first-ever postseason appearance in 1997 and guided his teams to multiple appearances in the PIAA District III playoffs. Behrenshausen also spent three seasons as the varsity assistant head coach at Boiling Springs High School where he helped lead the Bubblers to three Mid-Penn Capital Division Championships, a PIAA District III runner-up title and a trip to the PIAA state playoffs.
In addition to his high school coaching experience, Behrenshausen also spent many years coaching at the club level. He co-founded the Cumberland County Magic travel softball team in 2001 and held the office of vice president for the organization from 2001-2007. He was also the head coach for the 14U, 16U and 18U teams during his tenure with the Magic.
During his time coaching at the high school and club level, Behrenshausen saw many of his players continue their careers at the college level, most notably NFCA All-American Christina Wessman (Messiah College) and two-time All-Freedom Conference selection Lindsay Behrenshausen (Wilkes University).
Behrenshausen retired from teaching in June 2016 after spending 36 years as an elementary physical education teacher for the Carlisle Area School District. He resides in Mount Holly Springs, Pa. with his wife of 32 years, Cheryl. They have two children, Lindsay and Derek.
