I believe the fine is so steep because state tournaments are a big deal for most of the teams and players and they don't want teams that are "out of the running" packing up and heading home when other teams still want to play tennis that they paid for and earned.

State is typically an expensive weekend for those players that qualify between tourney fees, hotel, food etc you usually spend a couple hundred dollars for the weekend and I would be ****ed if team X lost their first 4 matches and decided to head home and we didn't get to play our last match because of it.

I wouldn't look at the fine as anything sinister or unreasonable, just take your team, go compete and do your best.
