PERSONAL
Born Tara Ashley Mueller on March 23, 1993 in Long Beach, Calif. ... parents are Suzanne and Steve Mueller ... is the oldest of three children, with sister, Tori and brother, Chad ... chose to attend UCLA because it is the only school she ever wanted to go to and because it is the best of the best for academics and athletics ... says the No. 1 reason she competes in softball is because it equals happiness in her life and without it she’d be lost ... favorites include the TV shows “Glee” and “Two and a Half Men”, the band The Black Eyed Peas, the Los Angeles Angels and outfielder Torii Hunter ... biggest athletic thrill so far is when she came out of nowhere to make a diving catch in right-center field during a game ... favorite hobby is reading a good book ... majoring in psychobiology.
