NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - A senior at New Hartford High School made his college decision official on Wednesday morning. What's exciting about it is that Derek Bard will head to the University of Virginia on a golf scholarship. Bard signed a letter of intent surrounded by his family, friends and coaches at the New Hartford School Library. Back in June, Bard became the first golfer from Section III to win a state title since 1992, and the first from the Mohawk Valley since 1979.
