WAVERLY, W.Va. - When it comes to playing the two sports Trey Blain loves, golf trumps basketball.
The sixth grader from New Martinsville turned in a round of 6-over par 76 to claim medalist honors in the boys 12-under age division at Friday's Callaway Junior Tour stop at the Golf Club of West Virginia.
Of the six Callaway Junior Tour events Blain has competed in, two have resulted in wins for his age division. On Tuesday, he claimed medalist honors at Highland Springs.

Jackie Cunningham of Little Hocking watches her tee shot on the seventh hole during Friday’s Callaway Junior Tour stop at the Golf Club of West Virginia. Cunningham shot an 80 and finished runner-up in the girls 15-18 age division.
"The Callaway Junior Tour gives me a chance to play a bunch of different courses, compete with other kids and meet new people," said Blain, who began playing golf three years ago at the age of 9 and picked up the game through his father, Jeremy.
Blain birdied three holes, including one at the 17th where his second shot settled under a tree.
"I hit a knockdown 52-degree wedge and it rolled on the green," Blain said. "Then I hit the putt."

A total of six age group winners were recognized with Logan Lojszczyk of Follansbee and Kelsey Allbright of Point Pleasant capturing the United Bank Low Round of the Day for the males and females, respectively.
Lojszczyk avoided major trouble and had just one bogey on the scorecard to go with three birdies as part of his 2-under 68 to claim a two-stroke victory in the 17-18 age group. His debut at the Golf Club of West Virginia turned out to error-free for the junior from Brooke High School.
"It was a solid day," said Lojszczyk, who reached a benchmark by finishing in red numbers for the first time on the Callaway Junior Tour.
"I was hitting greens and making putts. I didn't three-putt all day.
"I sensed it would be a good day. I felt very good when I showed up here. When I got on the course, I started making some putts."
In the girls division, Belpre junior Jackie Cunningham made an eagle during her round of 80 and was the clubhouse leader before Allbright arrived late with a 76 for the four-stroke victory in the 15-18 age division. The junior from Point Pleasant High School was only one stroke off from matching a career low.
"This is the best round I've shot in a while," Allbright said. "My drives and second shots were pretty good. I was getting kind of lucky with my putts. I wasn't expecting some of my putts to fall, but they would fall. Even with the long ones, I was surprised and happy."
Rounding out the age division winners were Bridgeport's Mason Williams (70) in the 13-14 age group; Wheeling's Freddie Fitzsimmons (74) for 15-16 year olds and Parkersburg's Jordan Mader (103) in the girls 10-14 age division.
Fitzsimmons defeated St. Marys' Drew Wells in sudden death after posting a birdie on the third playoff hole.
Wells completed an impressive week where he finished third at Highland Springs on Tuesday and fourth at Oglebay Resort on Monday.
"I played pretty well, but I left a lot of shots out there," Wells said. "In the playoff, I was playing for par because I figured par would win it."
