With Dalilah, it's her spirit and personality that shine through.
With partner Ethan Burgess, Mc Laughlin won two consecutive medals at the U. Championships: the bronze medal at the novice level at the 2004 U. Championships and the pewter medal at the junior level at the 2005 U. When Rockne Brubaker's previous partnership ended due to a lack of height difference, his coach Dalilah Sappenfield called Mc Laughlin, whom she had seen competing at other events, and arranged a try-out.
The pair went undefeated in their first competitive season together (2006–2007).
Her name is based on a Hawaiian word for "feminine wind running through the forest".
and focused entirely on pair skating when she teamed up with Brubaker. Her partner was too old for the Junior Grand Prix circuit so they split and she skated on her own for a while.
They cover a bit of history in coaching Keauna Mc Laughlin/Rockne Brubaker and Caitlin Yankowskas/John Coughlin, as well as what's in store with Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim.The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong. Mc Laughlin will sit out next season to focus on her schoolwork while Brubaker is searching for a new partner. Championship in junior pairs and the next two in senior pairs with Mc Laughlin, he won the 2005 junior crown with Mariel Miller.Their success at these two competitions qualified them for the 2007–08 Grand Prix Final, but they withdrew after the short program due to an injury to Brubaker. Mc Laughlin and Brubaker's win, combined with the wins of Jessica Rose Paetsch & Jon Nuss on the junior level, and Brynn Carman & Christopher Knierim on the novice level, gave their coach Dalilah Sappenfield a sweep of national pair champions for 2008, an accomplishment which led to Sappenfield being named Coach of the Year.Mc Laughlin and Brubaker began the 2008–2009 season at the 2008 Skate America, where they won the silver medal. Championships, Mc Laughlin and Brubaker successfully defended their national title, which resulted in them being selected to compete at the 2009 Four Continents and the 2009 Worlds.Mc Laughlin (born September 25, 1992) is an American pair skater.
