MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma -- The Midwest City girls have appeared to be invincible so far this season.

Their only losses have come to out of state teams and the closest an Oklahoma team has come is 13 points.

The Bombers' squad is loaded with talent, including two Division I commits. Richa Jackson has committed to Duke, while Kaylon Williams, a junior, has verbally committed to Oklahoma.

A few other Bombers have had offers from other schools, but have not committed yet.

With as much talent as this team has, not an ounce of selfishness can be detected.

"They understand that their night might be Friday night and their friend's night might be Tuesday. This team understands that more than last year's team or teams we have had in the past, so that's why you see the ball move around freer," said head coach Art Bode.

As dominant as this team has been, they still understand there is work to do before they can put that gold ball in the trophy case.

"We still have a lot of work to do and the girls know that if they don't want to be second best or not give it their best," said Bode .

"We know we are getting closer to playoffs. We only have seven games left, so it's time for us to lock down and get real serious because we don't want to repeat last year," said Williams .
