Clay Center’s Jaret Pfizenmaier – Runner Spotlight Presented by Fleet Feet

Clay Center senior Jaret Pfizenmaier is a multi-sport athlete, competing in cross country, basketball, and track. He has always enjoyed athletics especially at his high school, where he says there is a great community feel.

“I’ve always been involved in sports, I enjoy the team aspect very much,” he said. “I like having all my friends around and knowing everyone.”

Because he loves his high school, Pfizenmaier aims to leave a good legacy behind him even after he graduates in the spring.

“I’m motivated because I want to leave my mark on my school and I want to be the best I can be,” he said.

Pfizenmaier shared that one of the best highlights of his final season happened in Lawrence.

“My favorite moment in cross country this year is when our team placed second at the Rim Rock meet in Lawrence,” he said.

Everyone has someone they look up to in their lives. For Pfizenmaier, it is his father and grandfather, as he admires their work ethic and determination.

“I look up to my dad and grandpa very much, we’re farmers and so they have had to work for everything they have ever gotten,” he said.

After his time at Clay Center High is finished, Pfizenmaier plans to continue running cross country and track on the collegiate level.
