A key part of the Lakers’ high-scoring offense all season, Carey again was in the middle of things when No. 3 seed Colchester rallied to tie No. 4 South Burlington in the Division I state championship game June 9 at Centennial Field. Colchester trailed the Wolves 3-0 after 2 1/2 innings, but charged back in the third and fourth to pull even. The Lakers got onto the scoreboard on Eben Provost’s RBI groundout, then Carey made it 3-2 with a run-scoring single to drive in Tyler Daniels. Carey, a consistent contributor at the plate all season as Colchester averaged 7.4 runs per game, joined Saul Minaya as the only multiple-hit Lakers at Centennial.
