Withers swims for Eden Prairie High School and Edina Swim Club. He is the three-time defending Minnesota high school state champion in the 100 fly, and both a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American and a NISCA All-American. At the 2017 MSHSL Boys AA Swim & Dive Championships, Withers lowered the Minnesota Class AA record in the 100 fly to 48.25, just 5/100 off the all-time state record in the event, set in 1995 by Martin Zielinski. In addition, he placed fifth in the 200 free (1:40.57) and led off the Eden Prairie 200 free relay in 21.19, setting the pace for what would be the fastest 200 free relay in Minnesota history (1:23.49). He also led off the fifth-place 400 free relay (46.82).
Winters swims year-round with Edina Swim Club. He won the 50 fly and was an A finalist in the 100/200 fly and 100 free at the 2016 NCSA Summer Championship. At 2016 Winter Juniors East he competed in the 50 free and 100/200 fly; he was a B finalist in the 100 fly.
