In 2020, Guerra had 8 1st place finishes, including a sweep of the conference, sectional, regional, and semi-state titles. He was 2nd at the IHSAA Cross Country State Championships with a time of 15:34.40. He capped off his senuor XC campaign at the XC Town USA Meet of Champions in Terre Haute with a time of 15:34.10, which was good for 14th place.
