Despite losing the leadership of Coach Robertson in the offseason, the Bearcats under Ward Holloway would once again put up a fantastic campaign in 1928. For the second year in a row, the opener against Sedro-Woolley would prove to be a stumbling block for the ‘Cats as they started the season with a loss. This proved to ignite the Bearcat spirit as they followed the next week with a 51-7 massacre of O’Dea, a clear reminder to the rest of the county that Monroe was still very much a force to be reckoned with. The ‘Cats edged out their next four opponents in close games to set up another decisive game with their old rival Snohomish. In a classic defensive fight neither team could put up points and eventually the game ended in a tie. Rather than challenging Monroe to a rematch, the Panthers were content to share in the county title that season. The ‘Cats won their next game against Issaquah to finish at an impressive 6-1-1. Coach Holloway departed from Monroe after a single season and would be replaced by Ted Bankhead the next year.
