After the 2019 season, the Monroe Bearcats experienced one of their most tumultuous offseasons in team history. Many key senior players on defense and offense graduated, leaving many younger players to fill the void left in the upcoming season. Shortly after the playoffs, Head Coach Michael Bumpus stepped down after five successful seasons in Monroe as longtime Offensive Line Coach Scott Darrow took over the program. In January 2020, Monroe moved down to the 3A classification after almost twenty years as a 4A school, reigniting many historical rivalries with schools such as Snohomish and Arlington. Finally, the COVID-19 pandemic struck and the football season was put on hiatus until Spring 2021. With football cleared to be played, the Bearcats were slated to play five games starting in March.
Starting off the season with a game against Arlington, the Bearcats edged out the Eagles 14-0 in a defensive battle before matching up against Lake Stevens. In a 40-0 rout, Lake Stevens extended its winning streak against Monroe to eight straight victories. The ‘Cats rebounded with a big win against Mariner before suffering a crushing defeat against Glacier Peak, their most lopsided loss in the series so far. Concluding the season with a home game against old rivals Snohomish, Monroe cruised to a 42-22 victory and extended the winning streak against the Panthers to seven games. Though inconsistent, the Bearcats overcame a great deal of adversity to finish their season with a winning 3-2 record.
