    Lindsay Davis' last partner before Ladwig was Themi Leftheris in the 2010-2011 season; after they finished 7th at Nationals, they split. Lindsay was 18 at the time, Themi 27. IIRC, Themi retired after that season.

    Previously, she skated with Alex Merritt in the 2008-2009 season; she was 15 and he 22. They won Pacific Sectionals but split after placing 12th at Nationals.

    So she's got a record of only staying with partners for one year, although it's not like that's unusual in US pairs skating.

    In both of her previous partnerships, both men were much older with lots more experience. They may have been looking for instant success and when they didn't get it, they bailed. It is very common in US Pairs skating for the men to look elsewhere because they can more easily find new partners, while the girl is the one left behind. It doesn't seem fair to blame the splits on Davis, especially considering her age at the time in both cases.

    I actually think this would be Rockne's fifth partner, Mariel Miller, Keauna McLaughlin, Mary Beth Marley, and I think he had one partner before Mariel but not positive. However that being said most of the pair guys have had several partnerships.

    That's true. Mark was also much older with more experience.

    ETA:
    "Ladwig is exploring various options," said the Feb 7 press release re the end of Davis/Ladwig's partnership. It did not say that he was retiring, so maybe ice dance is one of the options?

    Maybe he's going to be coaching and wanted to see what the tests were like?
