No, Southwest Elite was already in the process of acquiring Aces before affiliating with EvoShield Canes.

There has been a bit of change/consolidation over the past 6 months in the area. Central Texas has been a watered down market which effects the high school level the most. A lot of the consolidation is aimed at making the high school programs more competitive at the regional and national level. The youth programs that are part of these organizations are just tagging along.

Austin Elite, Clutch Athletics and Colts all merged into Lone Star Baseball Club with the stated purpose of being more competitive at the high school level. The youth programs will all fly under the Lone Star flag but continue to operate separately. It's about taking the best few kids from each of these formerly separate programs to the WWBA and other big tourneys and being in a position to compete. It also allows them to combine their recruiting and college placement efforts.

Texas Fire merged into Wings

Southwest Elite became an affiliate with EvoShield Canes and acquired Aces and their field.
