Cougars SMASH Saints

The Goldsboro High School football team won its home opener — beating rival Southern Wayne 20-8 Wednesday night to improve their record to 2-1.

While we finish going through the hundreds of photographs we took last night, enjoy some of our favorite so far, taken by Pride photojournalists Jade King, Ororo James and Ta’Nija Miller.

When talent meets power

Members of the Goldsboro High School Show Stoppers put on an emotional Black History Month performance this afternoon in the auditorium — telling the story of the African-American plight through song, dance, and spoken word. An encore performance will take place this evening at 6 p.m.

The following photographs were taken by GHS journalism teacher Mr. Fine, to allow all of our students to take in what was a powerful and moving show.

Solid season ends

The Goldsboro High School football team didn’t get the outcome it wanted at Wallace-Rose Hill tonight, but the Cougars still improved on last season — advancing to the second round of the playoffs and notching a stunning first round victory over 2-seed South Granville last week.

The following shots were taken during tonight’s loss. Congratulations, gentlemen, on representing GHS well this season.

Portraits of a parade

The Pride wasn’t at the Goldsboro Veterans Day Parade this morning to simply shoot the Goldsboro High School marching band and JROTC.

I mean, we did that:

But our mission is to be true journalists. And that means documenting the WHOLE story. With that said, the shots you see here were taken by photojournalists Christina Richardson, Prophet DeVaughn, and our teacher, Mr. Fine.

Didn’t get a chance to see the show? Here’s a little peak. 

So don’t sleep on the crew’s next performance, scheduled for the end of November. These. Students. Are. Amazing. Period.
