In what would be Coach Langum’s final season with the program, the 1970 Bearcats would give a fitting end to his career. Starting out the season 3-1, the Bearcats looked primed to contend for a conference title yet again when they matched up against a strong Langley team. When the ‘Cats fell in a 22-20 defeat, it seemed as though their season was over. Nevertheless, the Bearcats rallied and played solid football the rest of the season that helped them keep pace with the conference leading Langley. The defense was strong and was coupled with a powerful offense that guided them to a 6-2 mark before their last game against King’s Garden. The ‘Cats easily won 28-0 and an upset of Langley by Stanwood helped give Monroe a share of the Cascade Conference title. Coach Langum left the program at the end of the season, leaving with an impressive record and winning seasons every year he coached the team. Ed Lucero would replace Coach Langum for the 1971 season.
