Clay Center’s Emma Pfizenmaier – Athlete of the Month Presented By Oliver’s Sports

By Hayden Swope

Emma Pfizenmaier of Clay Center knows what’s on the line for the upcoming season. The first team all-league softball selection is the only returning varsity senior, with big goals for her and her team throughout the season.

“I feel like the success of our season is on my shoulders,” Pfizenmaier said. “Our goals are always to compete well at league and to win regionals.  We have a lot of talent but we also have a number of girls that haven’t played a lot of ball together, so we need to be focused on communication and team work from day one.”

With years of experience under her belt, Pfizenmaier remembers her favorite moment on the field.

“My most memorable moment was winning regionals my sophomore year at Pratt, for an opportunity to go to state,” Pfizenmaier said. “I remember making a diving play at second to retire the inning to give my team a chance to stay in the lead going into the last inning.”

Outside of softball, you could find Pfizenmaier getting involved with lots of other sports and clubs throughout high school.

“I have participated in volleyball all four years of my high school career and basketball my freshman through junior year,” Pfizenmaier said. “I am a member of FFA and FCA.  I’m on the yearbook editing staff and I’m currently interning at various businesses in Clay Center as part of my senior project and work study program.  I’m a member of the Clay Center United Methodist Church and Youth Group too.”

Pfizenmaier plans to head to Manhattan in the fall to continue her education journey.

“Currently, I’m planning to attend Kansas State University to major in Psychology,” Pfizenmaier said. “My long-term plan is to receive my Commercial or Residential Real Estate license with the intent of owning my own business one day.”
