In recent history, Cape Hatteras Secondary soccer players have had three alumnae games, including the one played May 12, 2023.

So far, Cape Hatteras graduates have the upper hand with a 2-1 record against the high school girls team.

The 2023 edition was festive with a juggle warm-up to start. Current high school players wore bright red shirts while the alumnae were outfitted in white Hurricanes t-shirts.
