Vickie Miwa came to BGSU after attending Northern Arizona for one year, and became the first Falcon softball player to earn All-MAC First-Team honors three times. Miwa went 37-24 in her BGSU career with a school-record earned-run average of 0.93. She held 11 school pitching records at the time of her graduation, including the marks for career shutouts (20) and strikeouts (291).

Miwa, a native of Scarborough, Ontario, arrived at BGSU and immediately set the school single-season record with an ERA of 0.69 in 1986. She topped that mark with an 0.60 ERA the following year. Those totals still rank first and second on the BGSU list.

The following season, she led the league and posted a record of 11-6, earning Mideast All-Region Second-Team honors.

In 1988, Miwa and the Falcons had the finest season in BGSU history to that point, going 35-23-1 overall to set a school record for wins. The Brown and Orange went 24-8 in MAC play to post the school's first league title in softball, advancing to the NCAA Tournament and hosting a regional. That year, Miwa had a 1.43 ERA and 11 wins.

Miwa still ranks near the top of almost every BGSU pitching list, and still holds a share of the school record with eight career saves.
