Savannah Kranich | U.S. POLO ASSN.


Savannah Kranich

USPA Polo Instructor, Level 1

Culver, IN

She made the switch from showing hunters and equitation to polo her first year in high school at the Culver Academies. Polo was a new aspect of horses for her, and she wanted to give it a try. Fast forward to today, and Savannah is the Assistant Director of Admissions at Culver Academies and the coach for the Girl’s Interscholastic team. Savannah originally coached the JV IEA team at Culver but could not stay away from polo! She switched to coaching polo in the fall of 2012 after four years of coaching the IEA team. Savannah also coaches the Equestriennes, a girl’s mounted drill team honor organization at Culver. In her time coaching the Culver girls, the Girls’ Varsity teams have been Girls’ Interscholastic Central Regional Champions in 2013 and 2016. In 2016, her team advanced to the Girls’ Interscholastic National Tournament.

What has been one of your favorite teaching memories?
“One of my favorite teaching memories will have to be from the 2016 Girls’ Interscholastic Tournament. The girls were asked to speak about themselves and give a unique fact about their team. Their unique fact was that they call me Mom. As their coach, they are not just students on the team I coach, but I truly think of them as my children. It is an honor to be called Mom, and it makes me work harder every day to be the best the coach for the girls that I can be.”
