Fleet footed Matthew Sinclair sped his way to the Fiddler 5K title, the 13-year-old Carthage youth finishing in 19:35 Saturday morning, topping 387 entries in the large field. Sinclair, who runs cross country for Smith County Middle School, set a blistering pace of 6:19 per mile on the 3.2-mile undulating course that snaked from downtown toward the golf course and back to its completion in front of Love-Cantrell Funeral Home. “I run a lot for sports,” Sinclair said of his usually regimen when it comes to 5K training, noting he has won his age category before in the annual Fiddler run but this is the first time he has captured the overall title.
