New pro-basketball team to play in KCD’s Gardner Gym
Louisville’s new men’s professional basketball team, the Derby City Distillers, will begin its opening season on March 3—and will call KCD’s Gardner Gymnasium its home-base!
“Kentucky Country Day is excited to partner with the Derby City Distillers during its inaugural season,” said Head of School Peter Huestis. “We share the Distillers’ pursuit of excellence and, as the top independent school in the state, we are thrilled to share our incredible facilities with the Distillers organization and its fans. We look forward to seeing the players and fans on campus soon.”
The Derby City Distillers are owned by former University of Louisville men’s basketball player and Assistant Coach of the Varsity Boys Basketball Bearcats, Akoy Agau.
The Distillers’ first home game will be held on March 8, 2023. All home games will be played at KCD.
