Tammy Schiller - Photo Courtesy BGSU Athletic Dept. Tammy Schiller earned All-MAC First-Team honors three times and was named the league?s Player of the Year in 1990 and 1991. In both cases, she is the only Falcon volleyball player to earn such honors. Additionally, Schiller was the first Falcon to earn first team All-Mideast honors, as she was named to the first team in 1990 and 1991, following a spot on the second team in 1989. Caty Rommeck (2001) is the only other Falcon to earn All-Mideast Region first team honors.

Schiller was named to the All-MAC Tournament team in 1990, and in 1991 made the team again as tournament MVP, the only Falcon to earn that honor. She earned MAC Player of the Week honors four times, and was named Academic All-MAC in 1990. She twice participated at the U.S. Olympic Festival, leading the West team to a silver medal in 1990, with a team high .298 hitting percentage and 23 kills in four matches.

Schiller left her mark on the BG record books as well, setting a school record for kills in a season her junior year, and breaking that mark in 1991 with 591, which still stands as the most in school history. She also owns the top season hitting percentage in BG history (.393), as well as the third highest. She also holds the school record for solo blocks in a season, and set career records for kills, hitting percentage and attack attempts, which was later topped by Carlyn Esslinger in 1995. A career mark at the time, her 1,142 digs now rank fifth in school history.

She graduated from Bowling Green in 1992, and was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999.
