A coastal Taranaki girl has been named in the New Zealand women's basketball team who will head to the world cup in Europe.

Isabelle Cook, of Opunake, is going to Belarus as part of the Aon New Zealand Women's Under 17 team in July.

Cook was also part of the New Zealand team who finished fourth at the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asian Championship in India last October, securing their spot in this international competition. 

The FIBA Under 17 World Cup in July will be a historic occasion as it is the first FIBA age group World Cup ever attended by a New Zealand Women's team.
