“The Massey Machine,” a team comprised of Belmont Massey Graduate School of Business alumni and current students, raced on the Cumberland River this past Saturday as one of 44 boats in the Eighth Annual Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival. The event is sponsored by The Cumberland River Pact, which exists to help restore and clean-up the river.
Saturday’s event was a fundraiser with both corporate and nonprofit teams participating from as far south as Chattanooga and north up to Bowling Green. The Massey team made it to the Championship A bracket and finished 2nd overall. This marks the sixth year that Massey has fielded a team in the race.
