ND SPORTS merhayes — they all started coming into their own later. "At some point it will just come natu‑ ral to him, because he has the raw abil‑ ity, he has the attitude, he has all the key ingredients." For now, Petersen isn't concerned with any individual honors. As long as he's helping his team win, he knows ac‑ colades will come. "I share the team and individual goal of winning a Hockey East championship and a national championship," he said. "Obviously I think the individual acco‑ lades would come with that success, and that's my main focus right now. "Every time I go out and try to give my team the best opportunity to win, trying to win a championship and our league." ✦ Irish Roundup CROSS COUNTRY Both the Notre Dame men's and women's teams competed at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Nov. 13 in Madison, Wis.
