Default Batch Sparge Water Temp Question

My BeerSmith recipe is telling me to batch sparge (in two steps) at 168 deg. I'm going to be mashing in at 152 deg. with a strike water temp of 170.
If I sparge with 168 deg water I would imagine my actual sparge temp could drop 10 degrees adding that to the cooler temp grains.
BeerSmith doesn't give you a temp to start with for the batch sparge so wouldn't you want to batch sparge with something close to your strike water temp to achieve the 168 degrees? Or am I looking at this wrong?
Steve

The batch sparge process is typically so fast you don't need to mash out. I typically just use 170 degree sparge water. I've had no issues to date.
