Preparing the perfect chicken wing sauce was the goal of several students at the “Chicken Wing Champions” wing bowl competition in the Market Place on Monday, Sept. 27.
Five teams made up of four Cabrini College students each battled for the No. 1 spot.
The team had 15 minutes to mix any ingredients including mustard, barbeque sauce, brown sugar and honey.
The event, hosted by CAP Board, consisted of Team Throwback Wings, Team X Blade, Team Destroyer, Hello Lynn and Cuties Only.
This was the first event hosted by CAP Board members Sam Zeff and Shaina McCullough.
“All the teams had really creative sauces that made the event that much better,” Sam Zeff, junior business major, said.
“Because of the uniqueness of the event, we had a strong turn out,” Bruce Wright Jr., junior accounting major and CAP board director of onstage events, said.
Team Throwback Wings took the coveted first place spot with their spicy sauce.
Even though second place was won by Team X Blade, the race was pretty close between the other contenders.
“Team Destroyer had the best wings by far,” Ali Thompson, junior business major, said. “The sweet barbeque with a hint of parsley was absolutely fabulous.” Team Cuties Only took a different approach to the normal idea of a wing sauce.
The team preferred to use a large amount of mustard as their base. This choice produced an unappealing highlighter-yellow sauce.
“I was scared and intrigued at the same time,” Lauren Chieffo, senior marketing major, said.
“Oh, just close your eyes and enjoy,” Team Cuties Only said.
According to CAP Board members, The Wing Bowl will be making a another appearance again in the near future.
“It’s about going outside the box and doing something extraordinary,” Chieffo said.
