HOBBS, NEW MEXICO - Two seniors from Hobbs High School made it to graduation in style.

The teens were afraid they may miss the Friday night ceremony due to a conflict with the state track meet.

Representative Harry Teague and Businessmen Johnny Cope came to the rescue.

The men donated use of their private jet to get the teens back in time.

Dustin Francke and Jacob Lozano walked the stage, less than three hours after running in the State race.

They said they felt like superstars.
