Despite the loss, the Titans got an incredible performance from sophomore Lexi Smith. She recorded 28 kills in Thursday’s match — including a kill percentage of 70 percent — and added three blocks and 11 kills. Hagen Schaefer recorded a team-high 14 digs to go with two aces and four kills, and Raygan Kayser added 11 blocks.
