Metzger had a big day for the Titans tying two state records, one for three-pointers in a game (9) and for points scored (36).
Leipsic came up short in their bid for a Division IV state title as they fell to Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph 87-63. Devin Mangas led the Vikings with 18 points.
The runner-up trophy is the first such trophy for the Vikings. The team is scheduled to return to Putnam County today at 2 p.m.
