It would be interesting to know across various sections if any of the winning teams from their states play all 4.5/3.5 a combination or all 4.0s
I went through the data one year for 8.0 mixed in my district.
4.5M/3.5F won 80% of the time against 4.0M/4.0F
The losses were all high 4.0M/high 4.0F against weak/average 4.5M and 3.5F. High level 4.5M never loss against a 4.0/4.0 team.
