The 1934 Bearcats was one of the most memorable in team history as it was not only a very successful year but also featured compelling storylines from start to finish. It was the first year under Stan Bates, a Monroe High alum and University of Puget Sound star athlete who would leave a lasting legacy at Monroe and beyond. It was also the final season for the talented running back Lee Orr, the heart and soul of the Bearcat running offense and future track star at WSU and Olympian in 1936. The upstart Bearcats were humbled by Arlington to start the season but returned the next week to demolish Sultan, setting up an important game against a strong Marysville team. Neither side could muster any offense, ending with a scoreless tie but from that point on the Bearcats came into their own. While Orr spearheaded the offense, the Monroe defense played lights out all year. Both offense and defense came together as the Bearcats snapped off a four game winning streak, ending the year with a 19-7 victory against Snohomish. The ‘Cats finished the season with an impressive 5-1-1 record, a great start to Coach Bates’ tenure and an appropriate sendoff for Lee Orr.
